February 6th: Happy Sámi National Day!

Elsa Laula Renberg – the Swedish/South sámi activist, reindeer herder and politician who held the first gathering for sámis in Trondheim 6th of February 1917, where sámi rights and issues were discussed. This meeting became the foundation for our national day. She also founded the first ever sámi association in Stockholm.

Wanted to make a small post on this day, although we are just “celebrating” at home drinking coffee and watching a new five part documentary called “From Sápmi to Alaska”. It is about the Sámi reindeer herders who went from here in the late 1800s to help teach the natives living there about herding. Many stayed, some returned.

A very chill corona friendly celebration you could say 😊

Have a great national day ❤💛💙💚
