Home to Sápmi: Repatriation

Home to Sápmi – Repatriation

Finally, the Sámi people are to reclaim their heritage. Debates about cultural diversity, truth, and reconciliation are sparking much-needed change. But how can the profound wounds of being deprived of belongings, cultural and spiritual symbols, and even the remains of their ancestors heal?

This question is asked in the powerful and personal documentary Mácchan – Homecoming by Suvi West and Anssi Kömi and serves as a starting point for this talk.  

Welcome to a conversation moderated by Sajje Solbakk, Festival Director of Riddu Riđđu.  

In the panel:  
Suvi West, filmmaker  
Runar Myrnes Balto, Member of the Governing Council of the Sámi Parliament 
Marit Myrvoll, researcher at SANKS

The event is organized by TIFF in cooperation with FINNO and Riddu Riđđu festivala and is free and open to everyone.  

Time: Wednesday, January 17th, 3 pm  
Location: Tromsø library 
Audience/Ticket: Open to everyone, free admission
