Overview Derfor må du vite at jeg er same

Ella Marie won Norway’s Stjernekamp talent show, she brought the Sami vocal tradition of joiking into thousands of homes. She has used her new-won star status to draw attention to climate issues and voice her opposition to mining operations in Reppar Fjord. According to her mother, she was born with a fist raised above her head.

This book is a young Sami woman’s identity project, in which she tells readers about her relationship with nature, joiking and Sami culture – but also about prejudices and the darker history of the Sami people, which must never be forgotten.
