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.
