MCG April Meeting.
April 6 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Our April speakers will be Professors Sveta Yamin-Pasternak and Igor Pasternak. Their talk is titled.
Winter Chaga, Tundra Braga, Wildfire Saga: Stories of Ethnomycology in the North
Professors Sveta Yamin-Pasternak and Igor Pasternak are a team of an anthropologist and a visual artist, who teach Ethnomycology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Their lecture will feature first-hand insights gathered over the past two decades in communities around Alaska and Northeastern Russian Arctic. Among the examples will be the core subsistence species of the tundra regions, bounty of wildfire morels in the taiga burn, and Sveta and Igor’s personal favorite: the chaga hunt that they do while snowmobiling amidst the splendor of Alaskan winter!
