The Icelandic National League of North America (INLNA) was formed in 1918. Our founding convention was held on March 25, 1919 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Since then, we have promoted cultural activities among Icelandic-North American people.

From Tourism Winnipeg:

Manitoba's Icelandic community marks an important milestone this week, highlighted by a Winnipeg convention expected draw an estimated 300 attendees.

Iceland President Gudni Th. Jóhannesson and Canadian-born first lady Eliza Reid are expected in the city Thursday through Sunday as visiting dignitaries for the 100th anniversary of the Icelandic National League of North America, a continent-wide organization founded in Winnipeg in 1919.

The centenary at the downtown Fairmont hotel will feature music, sagas and cultural events. Presentations are to range from subjects as diverse as history and textile design; displays will include artifacts from ancient manuscripts to modern publications and information about genealogy and Icelandic studies.

Musicians, including local artist Sol James, Lisa Sigurgeirson Maxx from British Columbia, and Icelandic troubadour Svavar Knutur, are booked for performances.

The Long Friday Trailer from Other Noises on Vimeo.

When 90% of Iceland’s women went on strike one crisp Fall day in 1975, they brought their country to its knees – and catapulted this tiny island nation to the forefront of today’s global fight for women’s rights. The unstoppable women who created and lived this revolutionary moment bring it to life in THE LONG FRIDAY, a feature documentary-in-progress.

Fundraising to complete production is now underway. To donate through INLNA click our Donate button
