FARMLAND HOMELAND: THE FOLKLORIC TRADITIONS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA DUTCHFolklore is an anthropological and cultural exploration. It is everywhere and has been manipulated and transcended into a malleable definition and study of sorts. It is in this shadow of cultural anthropology comes the understanding and willingness to dive into an nontraditional examination of the past. Through interest, intrigue, and education, Farmland Homeland the Folkloric Traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch encourages its visitors to participate in the folkloric practices of the Pennsylvania Dutch; and to understand why their past is always present.
