Cultural Skills

The Cultural Skills Program encourages active participation in traditional and contemporary Norwegian-American pursuits.  Besides enriching the lives of members of all ages, it provides a basis for special interest groups within lodges. Skills may be pursued through the lodge or individually.

Several Colorado lodges have offered cultural skills programs, including Norwegian Language (Stein Fjell, Trollheim), and Rosemaling (Fjellheim, Storfjell, and Trollheim). Our lodge currently has Genealogy, Hardanger Embroidery, and Woodcarving groups. Trollheim has a choir. The Links page provides access to other lodge’s websites for current information about their cultural skill offerings.

Sons of Norway offers the following cultural skills (under Resources in the Members’ section of the Sons of Norway website). Youth Cultural Skills include Norwegian and North American Stamps, Knitting, Hardanger Embroidery, Figure Carving, and Folk Dancing.
