Pelkie: 100 Years of Finnishness in Michigan's North Woods

Available on Prime Video
In this oral history documentary, three generations of current and former residents weave attachments to people, places, and events into a portrait that blends community and ethnic identity in a small town of Michigan's Upper Peninsula called Pelkie. Much has changed in the idilic dairy farming community and although traces of Finnish ancestry remain, Pelkie is now a diverse community.
