A Woman Among the Sami, 1907-1908,
by Emilie Demant Hatt.
First published in1913, this is the narrative of Emilie Demant Hatt’s nine month stay in the tent of a Sami family in northern Sweden in 1907-8 and her participation in a dramatic reindeer migration over snow-packed mountains to Norway with another Sami community in 1908. A single woman in her thirties, Demant Hatt immersed herself in the Sami language and culture. She writes vividly of daily life, women’s work, children’s play, and the care of reindeer herds in Lapland a century ago. She memorably portrays people, dogs, reindeer, and the beauty of the landscape above the Arctic Circle.
