The Finnish Utopian Emigration Site
We honor in 2020 the "Viljavakka" Utopian Community that was founded in
Dominican Republic in 1930. Photo shows the "Second Christmas of the Colony" 1932.
“I have found an open, free and fertile land, the full potential of the promised land. I believe the Lord has led my step,
reports Oskari Jalkio, the head of the colony, to his vegetarian colleagues in “Terveys” -magazine.
Viljavakka was vegetarian. The community also opposed vaccinations.
As best there were 140 members.
NEW: Visit also our
that is updated very frequently and open for comments and
discussion about Finnish Utopians.
