myname!

Myrnam, AB. 2015.

The Canadian Prairies, particularly along the Yellowhead corridor from Winnipeg to Edmonton, have one of the largest Ukrainian diaspora in the world.  Although I do have some Ukrainian ancestry like many people in “Edmonchuk”, I can attest to the fact that even those who don’t have that ancestry are very aware of parts of Ukrainian culture that transmitted here to the mainstream.  For example, perogies are a common dish, children in school often decorate pysanka, and many also learn traditional dance.  In the urban fabric, the Ukrainain Orthodox churches are ubiquitous, especially in rural areas as a testament to the history of Ukrainain Canadians settling in predominantely agrarian areas of the Canadian West.  Though as I said, it’s very concentrated in the Yellowhead corridor and if you head to Southern Alberta, Ukrainian culture doesn’t permeate the environment down there so much.

Please do not sleep on a group because they’re from a smaller company.
Please don’t ignore them because you feel like they won’t make it big.
Please don’t underestimate a group because they’re from a smaller company.
Every group deserves to be acknowledged and loved and they all deserve a chance to make it big. I really don’t want to see more groups disband just because they weren’t able to make it big in the kpop scene. There are soooooo many hidden gems that deserve so much more love and recognition so please don’t sleep on them.
