anonymous asked:
how do you feel about certain karelian people trying to bar outsiders access to old traditions and culture that may or may not be karelian or then generic finno-ugric?

This seems like a loaded question. Karelians I’ve seen are nothing but considerate of shared culture, and ask either that people respect some things that are Karelian in origin be left alone, or at the least be approached respectfully. And that if something is shared, be respectful of Karelian roots as well as others. It’s an extremely open culture and community to approach if there is something you want to engage with and learn. If you have beef with “certain” Karelian people, that sounds like a you problem. I’d likely side with them, and also don’t like being approached to give someone validation on a vague argument without details on what this “generic finno-ugric” something is.

  1. Ezim. Ven'al Karjalan tazavallas eläjien karjalazien joukos et lövvä ni yhty ristikanzua, kudamal ei omas perehes olis kedätahto ven'alastu, valgoven'alastu, ukrainalastu i.m.i rodn'ua. Suomen puolel eläjät karjalazet ollah kaikin "segavuttu" savolazien, pohjalazien, päivänlaskusuomelazien i toizien kel.
    Konzu ristikanzat naijah libo mennäh miehele, hyö ruatah muga sikse gu suvaijah toine tostu. Ei muamankielen, ei vieron, ei perindehien, ei kul'tuuran eigo nimittuman "generic finno-ugric"-šittupaginan periä...
    Da konzu paistah karjalazes kul'tuuras da perindehis, on ihan selvy dielo što net ollah annettu äijän vaikuttehii kui "ven'alazuoh", mugai "suomelazuoh"... da tahtotah (erähät?) karjalazet iče libo ei tahtota, sežo suomelazet da semmite ven'alazet ilmivöt ollah äijän vaikutettu sih, midä kučutah "karjalazuon" nimel.
