Promised Land celebrates the Ukrainian immigrant journey in Alberta, specifically marking the 130th Anniversary of Ukrainian Immigration to Canada (2021).
In Promised Land we pay homage to our ancestors who persevered with faith and determination for a better life in this new place. They toiled with bended backs, not only for themselves, but for their descendants. Us, among them. We are the benefactors of their dedication and we humbly continue to carry the torch of our culture, our nation, and our homeland in their name.
