Earthlight Books is a family owned and operated, independent bookstore serving Walla Walla, Washington since 1973.The S?mi, who have inhabited Europe?s far north for thousands of years, are often referred to as the continent?s ?forgotten people.? With S?pmi, their traditional homeland, divided between four nation-states?Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia?the S?mi have experienced the profound oppression and discrimination that characterize the fate of indigenous people worldwide: their lands have been confiscated, their beliefs and values attacked, their communities and families torn apart. Yet the S?mi have shown incredible resilience, defending their identity and their territories and retaining an important social and ecological voice?even if many, progressives and leftists included, refuse to listen.Liberating S?pmi is a stunning journey through S?pmi and includes in-depth interviews with S?mi artists, activists, and scholars boldly standing up for the rights of their people. In this beautifully illustrated work, Gabriel Kuhn, author of over a dozen books and our most fascinating interpreter of global social justice movements, aims to raise awareness of the ongoing fight of the S?mi for justice and self-determination. The first accessible English-language introduction to the history of the S?mi people and the first account that focuses on their political resistance, this provocative work gives irrefutable evidence of the important role the S?mi play in the resistance of indigenous people against an economic and political system whose power to destroy all life on earth has reached a scale unprecedented in the history of humanity.The book contains interviews with Mari Boine, Harald Gaski, Ann-Kristin H?kansson, Aslak Holmberg, Maxida M?rak, Stefan Mikaelsson, May-Britt ?hman, Synn?ve Persen, ?yvind Ravna, Niillas Somby, Anders Sunna, and Suvi West.
