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.
Join our resident vølve (staff carrying woman) Kari Tauring for two Wednesdays per month all year. Learn and practice her unique approach to living in the Northlands.
Explore the three sets of eight runes called ættr ("family groupings") in three two-hour sessions with Nordic root scholar, performer, and author Kari Tauring. She illustrates each rune with songs, artifacts, story telling, and humor rooted in 30 plus years of scholarship.
