Changing, changing..

Did you know only around 10-20% of the whole sámi population speaks/write one of the sámi languages today? The longlasting banning of the languages caused identity crisis for many, but I am happy it is changing slowly 🐢 I feel proud to be part of the generation that is reviving our own culture, with not only language but art, clothing and music too 💚

  1. I’m really happy that there’s a revival on sámi language these days 🙂 it must be interesting to be part of a culture so rich like that Monica 🙂 may I ask you, would you like to be part of this rubric I develop in my blog called ‘locals’?? it is basically about one revealing what likes the most about his town (prefferible not the touristy ones, but as a local) and also letting know any cultural events 🙂 here are two examples: https://worldwidepedrol.com/category/locals/

    It would be awesome to feature someone from Sámi culture 🙂 let me know about your interest, if you’d like you can email me to worldwidepedrol@gmail.com

    thanks a lot and have a great week, PedroL
