The Earth My Mother

New book: The Earth, My Mother

The Earth, My Mother has at long last joined The Sun, My Father. The Earth, My Mother, originally published as Eanni, eannážan in 2001, became Nils-Aslak Valkeapää’s (1943-2001) final book. Harald Gaski, Lars Nordström and Ralph Salisbury have once more translated one of the author’s major literary works into English.

Poem of the Month

Beginning in September 2016, Lásságámmi will start publishing something we call ”Poem of the Month.” These poems will be presented in four languages: Sami, Norwegian, Finnish, and English. Our intention is primarily to present texts written by Nils-Aslak Valkeapää that have not been translated previously. In some instances this may involve texts that were not included in any of his books. In the fall of 2016 we will publish the poems that constitute the prelude – or overture – to the volume Girddán seivodan (I fly, I soar) from 1999. This book is still not translated into any other languages. We hope that our website visitors will find this valuable, since our intention is to make a much greater range of Valkeapää’s writings known.
