Kindred Pursuits: Folk Art in North Country Life

A nonprofit organization dedicated to showcasing the folk culture and living traditions of New York's North Country. Explore this site to discover the diverse customs and traditions--like storytelling, music, crafts, foodways, and folk art--that make life special in our region, from the St. Lawrence River to the Adirondack Mountains.

TAUNY is the North Country's only non-profit organization dedicated to identifying, recording, and preserving the rich, living cultural heritage of our region. For over 30 years, community members like you have been contributing their time, money, and talent to help us accomplish our mission.

We have exciting plans for this year and we need your help. Your gift makes a real difference. Join us in celebrating the unique culture of the North Country by making a tax-deductible gift to TAUNY today.
