Hi! I'm slavic by blood, but grew up in the US and want to reconnect with my heritage. How would you advise doing such a huge task?
Slavic heritage in general or a specific country?
Read a lot, research : start with tumblr and wikipedia just to dive in, to feel the old ways, to learn about your heritage. Talk to people who are also a part of your heritage, talk to others who try to reconnect - I know so so many people especially from US who want to discover and learn and be a part of the slavic people again!
Read about traditions, customs, history of the given country or slavic people in general, there are many sources in English that will allow you to learn - there is no reconnection without knowledge, without being aware of history and current times as well.
And listen to music - this is the thing that can take your mind back to the Old Times, remind you what a Slavic Spirit truly is!
Also, don’t be afraid to come off anon - there are many people from US reconnecting with their heritage who follow my blog, and a lot of people who want to help and be friends too.
