Sámi Jienat – Voices of Sápmi follows the adventures of a Sámi choir as they practice and perform yoik – the traditional Sámi way of singing – and in doing so rediscover their unique heritage. An indigenous society’s struggle for cultural survival, the inevitability of change, and the journey its members make together help the choir redefine their musical tradition for the modern age. The film premiered at the 2014 Tromsø International Film Festival in Norway in the ‘Films from the North’ category, and was also shown at the 2014 Skábmagovat Indigenous Peoples’ Film Festival in Inari, Finland. The film (Dir. Alistair Fowler, 2013, 58mins, UK / Finland) received an Award of Merit from the Accolade Competition, California, US.
