Iowa Folklife Volume 2 is a companion website to the website Iowa Folklife: Our People, Communities, and Traditions. Iowa Folklife Volume 2 does a wonderful job of allowing online visitors the opportunity to explore the "traditional music, foods, dance, rituals, and crafts of Iowa's diverse cultures." The areas explored here are found at the top of the page, and include "Blues", "Bosnian", "Danish", "Asian Indian", "Vietnamese Tet", "Lao", "Latino Music" and "First Nations Peoples". Visitors can click on any of the aforementioned links to be taken to a page that features a sample audio recording of traditional musical instruments, readings of poems, or songs. The menu on the page also has links to "Lesson Plans", "Resources", and "Traditional Artists". A map of the area which the traditional culture originated from, as well as photos of ceremonies, traditional dress, foods, homes, and the people, are all accompanied by paragraphs explaining the photos and the culture's history and area of concentration in Iowa.
