We Stopped Forgetting
Ellen Marie Jensen

During the immigration period of 1880-1940 an unknown number of S√°mi people left S√°pmi (Samiland; "Lapland‚ÄĚ) for North America alongside Nordic peoples. It has been estimated that there are at least 30,000 descendants of S√°mi 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. They have consciously chosen to stop forgetting their lesser known and sometimes silenced S√°mi ancestry by identifying with a cultural birthright. Further, their stories demonstrate a heartfelt commitment to both historical and contemporary S√°pmi and the Indigenous world in their lives.

Ellen Marie Jensen

She has attained a Master‚Äôs in Indigenous Studies at the University of Troms√ł and also studied Literature and Culture (English) with a focus on Indigenous literature.
