To those people who are familiar with archeology it is a well-known fact that people produced heir own unique features of every tribe in the early Paleolithic period. All primeval tribes differ according to territorial disposition, because this disposition predetermines their pace in all spheres of life. Their occupation defines the main activity of the tribe; husbandry or cattle-breeding, hunting or fishing – all these activities are caused by geographical position.The main activity of the tribe influenced their beliefs: the huntsman and fisherman tribes raised shamanic and totemic cults, drawing their own origin from animals; the cattleman and farmers developed the pantheons which reconsider the powers of nature, so-called cults of Mother-Nature. It is like different links of one chain, one feature generates the other with which it is closely connected.

The generosity of the Ukrainian soul can be also observed in national cuisine. Traditional dishes are the simple dishes but HTH have their own zest, Ukrainian women impart a small piece of their soul in every dish.
The main dishes of national cuisine – the borsch and dumplings are well-known all over the world. The hostile Ukrainian man never sees 0′ is guest with an empty belly, and the doors of his house are always open give the heating and shelter for a weary stranger.The national Ukrainian attire is also speaking for their owners; national clothing is light and gala.
