The event will be hosted by the members of the Katlakalns folklore set “Rāmupe”. On the contents of the event tells the member of “Rāmupe” Gunta Saule: “We are always thinking about our existence on earth, about our life here and now. About its relationship with nature. On the relationship of everyone to nature because we live on nature – our food is of natural origin. August is special in nature and rural life because it already shows what harvest is – we can already see how generous the sun, rain and other natural conditions have been for us. In antiquity, when people were much more dependent on exactly what was growing in the fields, the deities that had been chosen for human support and a source of power, were very important. In our, Latvian, mythical, and spiritual grasp of the world, we can call Māra as a mother of nature. The supervisor of our local world. Māra looks after our lives and health. And after natural life and health. Māra has her cows and her cereal fields. However, Māra also owns forests, meadows, shrubs, the sea, rivers, roads, and everything we are connected with every day. In our lesson, we will talk and sing about Māra and will meet her world."
In order to gain insight into the traditions and cultural characteristics of other nations, the foreigners living in Latvia will be invited to introduce similar deities, paying homage to them in their land and country, or to tell a national tale, saying, belief, or sing a song.
Participation is for free.
