Saami life. Indigenous stuff. Passion for writing (and taking a stance). Writings in English, Finnish and Northern Saami.
Welcome! I'm Biennaš-Jon Jovnna Piera Helga aka Helga West. I'm a Saami theologian from Deatnu river valley living outside Sápmi. In this blog, I write cultural essays as an indigenous of today in English, Finnish or Northern Saami. I currently commute between Finland and Estonia while doing my PhD about reconciliation @Helsinki uni. I'm a slow thinker and absolutely fanatic about recycling, which drives people around me simply crazy.
