We Stopped Forgetting

Stories From Sámi Americans
by Ellen Marie Jensen.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, a child of a coastal Sámi immigrant from Finnmark, Ellen Marie Jensen has returned to live in the land of her ancestors where she is actively engaged in Sámi society. It is estimated that there are at least 30,000 descendants of Sámi immigrants in North America and most of them are unaware of their Indigenous ancestry. The storytellers in this book give moving accounts of the history of their ancestors and tell their own life stories of cultural revitalization. Their stories demonstrate a heartfelt committment to both historical and contemporary Sápmi and the Indigenous world in their lives.
