Most stories about Sami history and culture, told at schools, universities and museums, present Sami people as other and foreign. Visions of Sápmi gathers articles that are part of a larger project to re-tell Sami history in an indigenous and decolonial perspective. This richly illustrated volume contains seven chapters that discuss historical conditions, geographic locations, language, reindeer herding, film, modern art and politics, demonstrating that Sami life and history is present from early archaeological findings and medieval sagas to contemporary politics and art and sub-culture splatter movies. It is the result of a unique collaboration between Sami and non-Sami academics and cultural workers, who together present Sami people as more than traditional reindeer herders and as partners in a dynamic, relational history that can and should be included as an integral part of Nordic histories. It is of interest to scholarly audiences and university students, as well as a general public with an interest in Sami culture. (Gunlög Fur, editor)
Taken as a whole, this book is a profound reflection on how post-colonial life can be detached from the heritage of colonialist perspectives. At the same time it is a celebration of vibrant Sámi cultural forms which are taking their place in the modern world of the Nordic countries as a creative force. In short, it is an extremely welcome contribution to intercultural studies. (Michael Pye, Former President of the International Association for the History of Religions)
