Ukrainian groups in North Dakota are planning a Z'zid, or gathering, to mark various Ukrainian communities' centennials as well as new publications on the ethic group's experience in the Dakotas.
The gathering will be at 9:30 a.m. Friday in Dickinson at Beck Auditorium at Dickinson State University.

New sources of information on the Ukrainians in this area are the basis for presentations by Gene Spichke on the community of Kief, Jeff Baranick on Wilton, Terry Haverluk on Ukraina and Doris Zaharia Heiser on Pembina. Theodore Pedeliski, retired University of North Dakota professor, will lead the question and answer session.
Two new books on the Ukrainian settlement and culture, based on WPA interviews done with homesteaders in 1939-40, and the memoirs of Andrew Dobovy, will debut at the gathering: "Kief, North Dakota: 100 Years of History," by Todd Spichke, and "Ukrainians in North Dakota: In their Voices," by Agnes Palanuk.
The event is free and open to the public.
