This is an unique chance to learn about Sami culture in Bergen. This is something you will not be able to find in a museum. We will first have a short presentation about the Sami people for some background information. You will learn about the Sami people, the way of living, the traditional singing called joik, which is a kind of chanting, like heard in the Norwegian song "Spirit in the sky" in the Eurovision song contest 2019. Did you know that all Sami children are given their own joik at birth? Would you like to learn to joik? This evening is for you: you decide. You will also learn about the Sami costume; Kofte. Did you know that you can tell where a Sami originalens simply by looking at the colours on the kofte? How would you look in a kofte? Would you like to try on a traditional Sami kofte (for women) for a nice photo shoot? We will have a look at my private collection of Sami handicrafts and art and you will have the opportunity to buy some of the beautiful home made Sami bracelets. In addition, it’s possible to have a taste of Sami food , but then you will have to go to the event called Sami culture and dinner.
I am Elin and I am sami - the only indigenous people living in Norway. For centuries the Norwegian government has suppressed the Sami people, making it shameful to be Sami. Luckily, this is changing. Sami culture is now on the rise again and our king has apologized publicly for the way the Sami people has been treated. I am proud to be Sami and happy to share my culture with you. I grew up in a sea Sami family and even though I work as an engineer, the sami culture is still part of me. If the dates of this event does not suit you, please send a message and I will try to arrange something for you if possible.
