The culture ministry has put together a selection of latest Estonian books, films and music, to send to the Estonian communities in Washington and Vancouver.

The ministry hopes the bundle will help Estonian communities abroad keep their native language and culture alive.

The idea came from the societies themselves, who hope the new material will help younger generations learn the Estonian language.

The bundle will include books by Indrek Hargla, Andrus Kivirähki, Mihkel Muti, Piret Raua and several other contemporary authors, films like "Zero Point", "Kertu" and "I Won't Come Back", and music from Urmas Alender to Curly Strings.

The ministry is ready to put together similar bundles in the future as one-off help to Estonian societies.

ERR also recently aired a program on West Coast Estonian Days 2015, which can be watched in our archive here.
