I'm looking forward to the exhibit Eight Seasons in Sápmi, the Land of the Sámi People, opening this weekend at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. Family lore has it that we are part Sámi from Norway, so I have a particular interest in my possible nomadic reindeer herding history. The Sámi are an indigenous people whose nation spans Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Photographs by Brigitte Aarestrup and work by Kurt Seaberg will be on display, along with traditional Sámi artwork and artifacts.
