"I hope that the richness of our culture will not be diluted by the Estonian culture; that our weddings, singing, family life and language will remain," says Kauksi Ulle, Evar’s partner, and Setomaa’s foremost writer.
"It will depend on the young generation, if they learn our traditions, our language," says Evar.
"I hope that in the future, young designers and architects will bring Seto ideas and traditions to their work."
