Lihkku beivviin – Happy National Day

Me, our son and my friend and relative ❤ Láhppigákti. Coastal Sámi.
💙💛❤
Hat and traditional shawl made by me ❤💛
Traditional knit by his father’s mother. Belt is supposed to be on hips, but not easy when he is moving like a little maggot 🪱😄

Today, we celebrated the Sámi National Day, Feb 6th. Sámis make up 0,7% of Norway’s population, but 70% of the usage of colours 😅❤💛💙💚

I have Kven/Finnish, Norwegian and Sámi heritage, and choose to celebrate what I can while I can. Life is shockingly short. I am deeply thankful for my connection to nature and my own heart, and wish you all the best 2022 possible.

May all beings be free ✨
