Lyrics in English:
Eagle Brother

Eagle brother, eagle brother, when, when
when will I be able to fly with you again?
when will I be able to fly with you again?

Far north, under Ursa Major, I saw, I saw
I saw your brothers fly.
I saw them enjoy themselves under the clouds.

They asked me to ask, they asked me to ask, who, who
did bind your wings that hard?
did bind your wings that hard?

They asked me to ask, they asked me to ask, who, who
did bind your wings that hard?
did bind your wings that hard?

The Sami people, also spelled Sámi or Saami, are the indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting the Arctic area of Sápmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway.

The Sámi are the only indigenous people of Scandinavia recognized and protected under the international conventions of indigenous peoples, and hence the northernmost indigenous people of Europe. Sami ancestral lands span an area of approximately 388,350 km2 (150,000 sq. mi.), which is approximately the size of Norway, in the Nordic countries. Their traditional languages are the Sami languages and are classified as a branch of the Uralic language family.
Traditionally, the Sami have pursued a variety of livelihoods, including coastal fishing, fur trapping, and sheep herding. Their best-known means of livelihood is semi-nomadic reindeer herding. Currently about 10% of the Sami are connected to reindeer herding and 2,800 are actively involved in herding on a full-time basis.[8] For traditional, environmental, cultural and political reasons, reindeer herding is legally reserved only for Sami people in certain regions of the Nordic countries.

Saami Youth of Norway, talking about the climate change
Dear tourist. When you think about Norway's Beauty, Nature, please do realize that this is a disappearing Beauty, the drama IS already going on. 
We may not close our eyes and be the selfish tourist. Tourists are free to go everywhere, still, but please, do realize what the consequences are of the damage some tourists create when they are in nature. In Norway.
You can contribute to Norway's Nature by offering your respect and following the rules that belong to the national parks, to contribute when you are home again to all what can change the climate change in not getting worse.
I would like to ask you to watch this video. 

Saami
The indigenous people in the north of Norway (Sweden and Finland) are named: Saami. 
They have their own language, and culture. 
They are split up in three nations. 
Their music, rhythms, musical instruments and songs (joiks) are much related with the Indians of North America.
Mari Boine, a Saami, is well known for her music, her joiks, and when you hear her, you hear the soul of her people.
Mari Boine Persen - Vuoi Vuoi Mu, Idjagiedas
