The Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives (BMUFA) in the Kule Folklore Centre is the largest North American repository of Ukrainian and Canadian-Ukrainian folklore materials. It is open to students, scholars, and the general public. It is used in teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses related to degree programs in Ukrainian Folklore. It is also used by outside researchers for studies related to Ukrainian and Canadian folklore, and as a resource for continuing community outreach projects and publications.
The Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives studies, documents, acquires, and preserves Ukrainian folklore in Ukraine, Canada, and around the world as it changes over time, and makes it available to researchers and the public.
The Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives strives to become the premier resource that documents cultural experiences of Ukrainians in Ukraine, Canada and other diaspora communities, accessible to all and integral to the understanding of Ukrainian diaspora culture in general, and the history and culture of the Prairie Provinces and Canada in particular.
The BMUFA is part of the Peter and Doris Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore (Kule Folklore Centre) at the Faculty of Arts, University of Alberta.
