Finland?s cultural traditions, reflecting both east and west, stem from its history for hundreds of years under the empires of both Sweden and Russia. From this have come two official languages, Finnish and Swedish, and Sami, a strong minority language spoken in northern Finland, all of which are protected by national language laws. Likewise, while the country is predominantly western Lutheran, the Finnish Orthodox Church is also a state church.

This presentation is free for ASI members, and included with museum admission ($6 admission fee) for nonmembers. Visit the ASI Kaffestuga (coffee shop) before this presentation for a summer dinner, treats, or coffee!
