Beginning in 2017, Nebraska Folklife has launched an ongoing fieldwork survey to identify and support traditional artists and other types of culture bearers and examples of folklife in Nebraska. We’ve been using Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) as a geographic base, an attempt to draw connections between the landscape and cultural expressions in Nebraska.
