This article is concerned with the functioning of myths in the life of the Hutsuls, an ethnic group of the Eastern Carpathians, and especially the unity, renewal and remembrance of the Hutsul myths in the process of cultural anamnesis. The primary source of this study is a literary record of the Hutsul myths and beliefs set down in the mode of memoir by Stanislaw Vincenz (1888-1971). While examining the Hutsul mythology of remembrance and forgetting, special attention is paid to aquatic mnemic symbols, the local equivalents of Lethe, Eunoe and Mnemosyne in their transcultural, universal significance.
