Min kjære far er ute med boka "Gåebrien sijte -en sameby i Rørostraktene". En tildels dramatisk historie om en av de sørligste samebyene i Norge som har overlevd umenneskelig press, og tross det idag fremstår som et livskraftig samisk lokalsamfunn i Rørosområdet.

Den er både tilgjengelig i trykt utgave og som ebok på iBookstore.

"With over 300 words to describe snow*, the Sámi are among the world’s foremost experts on polar landscapes and the ways in which snow, ice, rain, wind and sun interact with one another to create the very ground they walk on. Their traditional knowledge is increasingly important, critical even, as we move forward in an age of uncertain and changing arctic landscapes. As many continue to recognize, modern science alone cannot, and should not, be used as the only source from which climate change measures are understood and prescribed in a world of mixed populations and myriad traditional knowledge banks based upon hundreds of years of intimate interactions with the natural environment."
Pulling back the curtains to my window this morning, overlooking the small arctic town of Kautokeino in northern Norway, the landscape looks charmingly picturesque. Colorful wooden houses are tucked under a thick layer of snow, a white tundra plateau extends off into the horizon. Daylight, now making an appearance in this part of the world…

Endelig er faderens bok også tilgjengelig som ebok. I første omgang for iOS, men om ikke alt for lenge også på andre plattformer (Amazon og Google Play er jo ikke åpen for norskspråklige bøker enda). Kanskje den tilogmed havner i bokskya!?

Story
Introduction
As a Sámi grown up in a Sámi community I engaged in Arctic and indigenous peoples' issues already as a student. In most of my professional carrier I have been involved in policy planning and development as part of the Sámi Parliament staff, as an independent consultant in Jaruma AS, as Head of the Arctic & Environmental Unit in the Saami Council, as Executive Secretary of the Arctic Council Indigenous Peoples’ Secretariat, and now I'm back at the Sámi Parliament as Director General. All of these positions have given me a thorough understanding of Arctic issues from different perspectives. I believe my background has given me a strong basis for working with Arctic issues and in particular indigenous peoples' issues.
