We often think of music as art, as culture, as expression. For the Sámi in northern Fennoscandia, however, music is so much more. Focusing on both traditional joik and modern rap, this presentation will explore how Norwegian Sámi use music to give new breath to indigenous identity, preserve language and color the country’s political landscape.
