. On the basis of a much broader programmatic basis, only one year later, in 1970, the Chakavian Parliament was established in Žminj, which included various cultural-artistic programs, scientific and professional meetings, publishing activities, erection of memorials, restoration of Hum and other Istrian towns, valorisation and revaluation of Chakavian dialect, and perhaps most importantly – evaluation of cultural and national identity, not only of the Istrian, but also of the entire Chakavian speaking area. The goal was achieved through Chairs, which represent territorial sections. The Chairs articulated programs specific to the areas in which they were founded. In 1970, new Chairs started operating in Pazin, Labin, Buzet, Novi Vinodolski, Roč, Buje and Poreč. In the following years, the Chairs were established in Barban, Juršići, Opatija, Pula and Split. In 1979, a representative anthological encyclopaedic column “Istra kroz stoljeća” (Istria through Centuries) was launched within the publishing activity of the Chakavian Parliament.
The editor-in-chief (for the first ten publications) was, until his death, writer Zvane Črnja, who was also the founder of the Chakavian Parliament. During the 30th anniversary of the existence of the Chakavian Assembly, in 1999, the Chakavian House was established and opened in Žminj, with an additional emphasis on its library – the so called Chakaviana. Young Chakavian poets gather in Žminj each year in May. The poetry read on the contest "Di ča slaje zvoni" can be later found in the eponymous collection published each year by the Chakavian Parliament. The best poet, chosen by the committee, receives a special award – a Golden Feather.
