Mus lea ollu muitalit, muhto dus nu unnán áigi : Life-stories told by elder Sámi women - A critical social analysis
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is about women’s untold lifestories. Told by elder Sámi women who lived in two different countries, the Norwegian- and Finnish side of Sápmi. For more than twenty years ago I conducted twenty-seven elder women about their lives, including both good and bad days, and good and bad experiences. These women, they were old already then, so now, in year 2016, only three of twenty-seven informants are still alive. I conducted them to understand and learn more about our oral traditions, about the past that mobilizes the present time and gives us the reflection about the future generations in Sápmi. Usually the oral tradition is rich among the Sámi people, there are many good storytellers. So with this master thesis’ I would like to find out more about; how come that elder women are so invisible with their stories and what are the stories we are loosing, because we do not conduct them? I am following three historical periods, that will show the changes in local socities and how these changes are described and told by women born in the period of year 1895-1930.Dá lea masterčálus mas eallilan nissonolbmuid muitalusat leat vuođđun. 20 jagi dassái de bivden 27 nissonolbmo muitalit munnje sin eallimis ja vurkejin dáid muitalusaid dássážii.
