Norway House + Kari Tauring

Nordic folk musician, cultural educator, and spiritual leader


Norway House’s resident “Staff Carrying Woman,” Kari Tauring is back this fall!

Kari has been studying Norse mythological poetry and runes since 1989. Plunging her identity as a Norwegian-American into a time before lefse and coffee, Tauring began reconstructing the ways of the völva or “staff carrying women” of Old Norse history and tradition. Today, Kari Tauring carries the staff for her family of origin, her greater community in Minnesota, and the folk art community that sustains her work.

This fall and winter, Kari Tauring offers classes on food traditions, Old Norse healing and living, and a primer on the Nordic Runes and their usage.
