History in Lithuania
Edit This The earliest evidence of inhabitants in present-day Lithuania dates back to 10 000 BC. Between 3 000-2 000 BC the cord-ware culture people spread over a vast region of Eastern Europe between the Baltic Sea and the Vistula River in the west and the Moscow-Kursk line in the east. Merging with the indigenous population they gave rise to the Balts a distinct Indo-European ethnic group whose descendants are the present-day Lithuanian and Latvian nations and the now extinct Prussians. The first written mention of Lithuania occurs in 1009 AD although many centuries earlier the Roman historian Tacitus referred to the Lithuanians as excellent farmers. Spurred by the expansion into the Baltic lands of the Germanic monastic military orders (the Order of the Knights of the Sword and the Teutonic Order) Duke Mindaugas united the lands inhabited by the Lithuanians the Samogitians Yotvingians and Couranians into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) in the 1230s and 40s. In 1251 Mindaugas adopted Catholicism and was crowned King of Lithuania on July 6 1253; a decade later civil war erupted upon his assassination until a ruler named Vitenis defeated the Teutonic Knights and restored order. Lithuania's independence under the union with Poland was restored by Grand Duke Vytautas. During his rule (1392-1430) the GDL turned into one of the largest states in Europe encompassing present-day Belarus most of Ukraine and the Smolensk region of western Russia. Led by Jogaila and Vytautas the united Polish-Lithuanian army defeated the Teutonic Order in the Battle of Tannenberg (Gruenwald or Zalgiras) in 1410 terminating the medieval Germanic drive eastward.

    Introduction to Culture
    Every national or racial group possesses both good and bad traits manifested not only in the group's individual members but as a quality common to the group as a whole. This has been noted by both scholars and ordinary people as they come into daily contact with neighbors of a particular nationality or race. These observations, somewhat elaborated upon and exaggerated, form the basis of anecdotes about one nation's foolishness, another's stinginess, a third's drunkenness and so forth. Alongside negative anecdotes, opinions are formed about the diligence, neatness, honesty and dignity of certain nationalities. Regardless of whether we like or dislike being Lithuanian, we cannot change our national origin for it has been shaped over thousands of years by the nation's way of life, environment, customs and traditions. This remains ingrained in our souls even when we intentionally or unintentionally separate ourselves from our national group.
    We have all inherited our nation's character. It cannot be wiped out either by the culture of the country where we reside, by our way of life or by our surroundings. Americans appear to understand this already and it is thus very common here to seek "one's roots," researching the nationality, origins, customs and traditions one's parents, grandparents and great-grandparents brought to this country so many years ago. Nearly every American can identify the nationality of his father, mother, grandfather and grandmother. This helps to explain why a particular person has a tendency toward thrift, anger, gossip, business, revenge and the like. Psychologists maintain that such knowledge of one's "roots" enables an individual to understand himself better, accept mood swings and deal more successfully with life's hardships.

    Identification. Lithuanians are fond of nature and have a strong feeling of a shared culture that begins as early as primary school, where folk music, national traditions, and holidays play an important role.

    H ISTORY AND E THNIC R ELATIONS
    Emergence of the Nation. The origin of the nation and the development of its culture were strongly influenced by foreign occupation of the country and are the result of the perceived need of the people to preserve something of their own. Even when the national language was banned and reading or writing of books in the native tongue was forbidden, people were determined to spread their heritage and share their traditions.

    Residents enjoy Lithuanian culture at Etobicoke nursing home
    Tuesday October 14, 2003 Sheri Fiegehen
    Although the Labdara Lithuanian Nursing Home focuses on the Lithuanian culture, it is also attracting residents of other descents, says the administrator. That being said, the Lithuanian culture can be felt throughout the home. The original artworks that adorn the walls were created by Lithuanian artists, and the menu reflects Lithuanian favourites, such as potato pancakes, cabbage rolls and crepes with cottage cheese, says Joan. Activities also have a Lithuanian theme to them, such as story-telling, discussions of world events, comedy hours and the baking club. Although most residents can communicate in English, many prefer Lithuanian. This can pose a bit of a challenge, says Joan. Most staff do not speak Lithuanian, so to compensate, the home welcomes a number of Lithuanian-speaking volunteers. So how do the English residents feel about living in a Lithuanian nursing home? According to Joan, they love it. People choose to live in the home because of its high quality of care and home-like environment, she says, and if anything, the Lithuanian atmosphere makes life interesting.
