Record #141720:

The Sami woman: what she writes and what is written about her / Vuokko Hirvonen.

Title: The Sami woman: what she writes and what is written about her / Vuokko Hirvonen.
Author(s): Hirvonen, Vuokko.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Oulu, Finland: University of Oulu
In: On the terms of northern woman. Articles written by women researchers in Finland, Russia, Samiland and Sweden. (1996.),
Abstract: Traditional Saami myths describe origin of Saami, entry of evil, importance of women and their skills, preference for boy babies, etc. No one has yet studied other Saami stories for their assumptions. Laestadius's description of ideal woman resembles Trusty Servant of Minstead, Hampshire. It enhanced status of men (perhaps needful; they were quite degraded by drink). Author asks why girls at start of 20th Cent. did not continue like boys after catechism school. Was there fear that educated girl might end as spinster? First Saami women writers appeared in 1970s. Now most Saami writers are women; most writings are poems, children's books and short stories.
