< EATNAMEAMET – OUR SILENT STRUGGLE>
The Sámi are Europe’s only remaining indigenous people, who reside in the northernmost regions of the Nordic countries, including Finland. Their existence is tied to their language, traditional knowledge and relationship to the land, which they nurture so that it may someday sustain the future generations of Sámi yet to come. However, in the midst of this serene landscape howls a series of broken rights, laws, and injustices as the Sámi are time and time again caught under the foot of the Finnish government and the state’s economy-driven policies.
