The history of the Saami people is covered very little, with one page at the most, in the Swedish school system, rarely with accurate information. The colonial history of Sweden, with the oppression and violence toward the Saami, is not covered at all in the Swedish school system.


I know that I have Indigenous rights, and that’s thanks to my mom and dad, not to any conventions of the U.N. or the constitutions of Swedish law.

Obviously indigenous activists are potent propaganda tools in the various eco arguments. After generations of being treated as invisible the attention from interested parties could easily lead to indigenous activists being manipulated. I implore all indigenous activists to remain pure to their cause. Sofia describes herself as an artist rather than an activist, but the same applies.




This is not really a music video, more like an instructional video for how to put on a Sami costume within 3 min 30 sec.

I'm not sure this costume would suit me, but I now know how to put it on.
Thank you Sofia.

English translation by Mats Melin:

Snow Lioness

I do exist, I’m a feminist, environmentalist and pacifist

I am a snow scooter hooliganist and an egoist I am a Buddhist, I believe in Jesus Christ

I was here first, not last

Don’t treat me like a legal wrangle

between, yours, mine, lines on a form

historical inventions and lies

Anti-racist – my ass

when you do not see from whom you have stolen all your cash

He, she, hen, "son"

You stole our land back in time

Indigenous woman, snow lioness, I am your retina’s rainbow

I am all of this but I am more, mon lear queer, I have existed for thousands of years

Hi minister, can I have a word

Hiding in your small ward

This concerns our whole world

Do you know we actually commit suicide?

Because we are too few to exist

And that which concerns the few does not matter

Can you understand that I do not want to disappear

When we have lived here as long as the land can remember

Is this democracy?

When the dominant class rule over the likes of us

I want to be totally free apart from inside my own being

One thing is for certain I belong to the land

Indigenous woman, snow lioness, I am your retina’s rainbow

I am all of this but I am more, "mon lean" queer, I have existed for thousands of years

"Eamiálbmot, álo gávdnon, mon lean lejonváibmu garra fámuin

Mon lean gait, bonju maid, arvedávgi ravddas ravdii"
