I, ViviAnn, am an Indigenous Sami women living in Sweden. I live in what we call Sapmi. It is the land of the Sami population in the northern part of Sweden, Norway, Finland and The Cola Peninsula, Russia. We, the Samis, are the northernmost indigenous people of Europe. Around 10 % of the Samis are involved in reindeer herding.
I was brought up in a family and clan of reindeersherders, healers and yoikers (singing the saamiway) in the very north of Sweden.
The name of the Saami reindeerherding community where I come from is: Saarivuoma sameby (sami village) and it is the third sami community counted from the very north of Sweden. A reindeer herding community or village Is not a village in a real sense but instead an geographical area in which reindeerhusbandry is executed.
This website will feature my thoughts, feelings and knowledge about my #life and #lifestory where the #reindeers have a sacred space. I will tell this story through Daily videos and in the future also through Pictures and articles.
Follow my honest, naked and non-edited story.
