‘This is a great podcast about how the Aboriginal people passed on the memory of the sea levels rising at the end of the last ice age.

Edit for my future reference: Given the importance of living by the ocean for access to food etc. I wonder how much of Aboriginal culture has been lost a few kms off the coast’–Sys32768

‘As for West Slavs in Pommerania, those would be Slovincians or other Pommeranian groups that hadn’t been assimilated by the 1830s.

Lithuanian minority in East Prussia was quite huge, they were the majority in the countryside around Tilsit, and Tilsit itself acted as a big Lithuanian cultural centre at the time. Lithuanian was banned in Imperial Russia, so they printed the books in Tilsit and smuggled it across the border.

And it isn’t that different than the situation just before WW1 or WW2 even, as even up to 1945, Lithuanians formed a big minority in eastern East Prussia while Polish speaking Mazurians were a large minority along the Polish border (southern East Prussia)‘–Vitaalis

‘Do any of them still live somewhat traditionally, or is it like in the US? … sadly not. but there may be more dignity intact than what native americans have been left with - there aren’t ‘reservations’ at least. some ways of catching and preparing food are still used in some places, as is the language increasingly. and the tattoo culture remains strong. traditional dance, music, clothing etc. are mainly only to be seen in mocked-up tourist ‘villages”

‘I always want to answer Australian but I always feel like it’s missing the point of question so I’m never sure.

My ancestors first arrived in Australia on the second fleet, and the last time one of my ancestors was born internationally was well over a hundred years ago. We have no ties to any international family, so ties to any immigrant group in particular.. like I have German heritage but it’s been generations since anyone spoke German. Irish ancestors and British ancestors but we know nothing about their lives before they came here etc.

Feels completely disingenuous to say I am ‘Irish’, ‘German’, etc when it’s been several generations born here and living here as Australians.

I wish there was a better definition given or the question was more specific’–qsims

‘Ethnic Russians would only be in the majority in Crimea and the built-up parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts, and pretty much every ethnic map of Ukraine that I’ve seen (whether Soviet or Western) has reflected this. This was most likely an oversight on someone’s part – the guy making the labels forgot that Ukraine would be included, or accidentally put “Russian” when he meant “East Slavic”, or something like that’–Lazar_Taxon

‘And today it’s all a red blob. What a disgusting, depressing turn of events. The untold hundreds of thousands of people that were deported from their homes and killed…

It’s always good to remember that the Turkish Republic stands today upon the bloodied bodies of these many Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Arabs and Anatolian peoples that were so eagerly disposed of for the ambitions of a dying empire’–VFacure

“I wonder if Hungarians are included as Austrians and if Ukrainians are included as Russians due to their inclusion in their respective European empires.

I was surprised to not see any Ukrainians specifically due to the very sizeable minority we have in Canada, especially in the prairie provinces, however they may have migrated later in the century. (Perhaps during Stalin’s regime?)“–ElectroMagnetsYo
