Krasnodar, 31 October – Yug Times. On October 26 and 27, Maikop was the venue of the Days of Russian Culture, attended by scholars, politicians and public activists from the North Caucasus and Southern Federal Districts.
During the festivity, Maikop, despite its status as the capital of a traditionally Moslem region and Adyghe (Circassian) culture, was able to reveal its Russian nature - the force that brings together all North Caucasian ethnic groups in one state. The Adyghean State Philharmonic Society organized an exhibition of folk trades, where local artisans showed their handicraft works, tasty pirogi, painted dishes, and Russian national clothing.
The participants of the festival agreed that the work aimed at enrichment of the everyday life with traditional elements becomes especially important in our age of globalization, when the society is subject to Western cultural samples. Our links with our own cultural code let us return to the traditional perception of Fatherland and bring up new generations in traditional ethnic spirits.
