Handcarters ~ Karnner

The Handcarters , the ‘Karnner’ , Tyrolean people living a nomadic life because of poverty, and sometimes political or religious persecution or curiosity, would pile their belongings and kids onto handcarts to hit the road to places were they supplied the population with goods and services, or worked for example as a knife sharpener, tinker, basket maker or broom binder.

This Tyrolean minority is not forgotten during the fifth season on ‘Foolish Thursday’ (“Unsinniger Donnerstag”) in Tirol , were the colorful “Igler Karrner” dressed up as old men and women pulling a cart – go out on the town in a cabaret-like show with characteristic masks, music and dancing in the small village of Igls, near Innsbruck in Tyrol (Austria). ~ Video : January 31, 2008 | Film : February 4, 2016 by Michel van der Burg | 1-memo.com

Tiroler Fasnacht – Carnival – in Igls

Tyrolean nomads are not forgotten during the fifth season.

Tirol, Igls (Innsbruck, Austria) at least once a year does not give up its gypsies – the indigenous nomads or ‘Jenische’. They play an important role in the carnival – especially in the uplands , where this minority once had its main centers . The ‘ Karner ‘ travellers with handcarts have survived as traditional figures of Tyrolean Fasnacht on Unsinnigen Donnerstag (‘Foolish Thursday’) when borderless liberty, the other, and free-spirited persons are celebrated.
