Lecture "DrinkIing the Udmurt way" by Eva Toulouze

Eva Toulouze (Paris, INALCO, professor in Finno-Ugric Studies; Universisty of Tartu, Department of Ethnology) introduces in her short presentation, the Udmurt use of their moonshine, kumyshka. While formerly it was mainly a ritual brew, today it is mostly used to receive guests and to celebrate. I show gestures and rules about its use as well as the containers in which it is held and poured. I finish with some examples of its use while commemorating the dead.
