The Kivajat Finnish-American Folk Dance group is a successful youth outreach of the Finnish American Heritage Center at Finlandia University. The Kivajat preserves, interprets and performs traditional Finnish folk dances and music, wearing traditional Finnish folk costume.
Since 2004, the Kivajat have been ambassadors for the Heritage Center, Finlandia University and the Copper Country, dancing at nursing homes and festivals throughout the region, including the Western UP, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Canada and even Finland.
