The Polar North - Ways of Speaking, Ways of Belonging

The Polar North - Ways of Speaking, Ways of Belonging

By Stephen Pax Leonard

The author set off on a journey to document the language and spoken traditions of a small group of Inuit living in a remote corner of north-west Greenland. This group call themselves the Inugguit (the 'big people') and they speak an exceedingly complex language understood by few outsides. Leonard lived with the Inugguit for 12 months, learning their language and living their way of life, which includes travelling exclusively by dog-sledge. Affected directly by climate change, the Inugguit's corner of the planet is melting.

The Sami Peoples of the North

The Sami Peoples of the North

By Neil Kent

This is the first comprehensive history of the Sami peoples of the Nordic countries and northwestern Russia. In the first instance, Neil Kent considers how the Sami homeland is defined: its geography, climate and early contact with other peoples. He then moves on to its early chronicles and the onset of colonisation, which changed Sami life profoundly over the last millenium. Thereafter, the nature of Sami ethnicity is examined in the context of the peoples among whom the Sami increasingly live, as well as the growing intrusions of the states claiming sovereignty over them.

The Soviet gulag, the Lapland War and increasing urbanisation have all impacted upon Sami life. Religion, too, played an important role, from their prehistoric pantheon of gods and sacred sites to Christianisation. Recently the intrusions of the logging and nuclear industries, as well as tourism, have come to redefine Sami society and culture. And what it means to be Sami at all is increasingly scrutinised at a time when some intermarry and yet return to Sapmi, where their children maintain their Sami indentity.
