@Loukas_RS hurray! Any advice on funny/boring film to have in the background while sleeping?
On the bus from work, looking forward to spend my evening sleeping on the sofa. What are your plans? http://t.co/dr2rzBfH6N
@josecarlosliria no. fathers….
@mary_krone hm. maybe they are! they are not very thick though and they dont smell eucalyptus…
@matthewddsg Didnt help. But it smelled good!
@maartjefennis it makes my days so much happier when I wear them!
@Kintopf you find them at Silvemuséet in Arjeplog!
@alisonborealis They are! :D
@rightnowio_feed thanks for the RT!
@alskarlandsbygd åh, nice one! tack før tipset!
@aidanthefiddler is it true! what did you do there? did you live in jokkmokk?
Struggle to concentrate at work today. Trying to re-focus with help of the scent of these flowers. Will it work? http://t.co/35F1TCezIh
A video from our wrestling practice, you see me in grey t-shirt in the background trying to make it right… http://t.co/DO2GTAhvN4
@annemaret tycker du det anne máret! det e viktigt før mig! <3 tack!
Have planned for 2 resting days from practice now. Tomorrow=working & saturday=norwegian wrestling championship in Tromsø, very exciting!
But the boxing! Was two other girls there tonight, well fun! Learning the basics. I wanna get strong. Wanna be quick.
@KingHamedoo thanks :)
@mog8191 aha! I’m not sure how to get here to be honest!
@Frenetisk ahhh, I love it as well. Such a brilliant concept! Let me know if you find other sweet co-labs of interest.
@mittenbery laponia.nu might be a place to find more info about it, or google the national parks padjelanta and stora sjöfallet!
@mittenbery we have the wonderful thing called Allemansrätten that allows you to walk on lots of land :) + some good trails in the mountains
@mog8191 sorry, which line?
@Factswd wow! I dont understand this but the translation tells me you are telling folks about the concept of sweden twitter account. great!
@acejacek very good, useful words. :D
@swedishmarcus tack, ska lyssna!
@tmfares will do, thanks!
@DonGiovanna lots of hills here yeah :) not sure about the nickname, I have never been to Paris!
@mybell50 ah. You are rich with good quality food!
@can_senel yes, some! It’s quite cool!
I listen mostly to hiphop, dancehall and reggae. A Swedish band called Glesbygd’n is a favourite! @AhmadNo1
@TerttuEE lovikkavantar is what we call them in Swedish :)
@Nestor076 of cultural aspects in Sami that make it possible for me to express myself more true to my heart, in a way Swedish won’t let me.
@Nestor076 Swedish is my first language and I’m better at Swedish than Sami. But there is a big emotional difference. Also there are lots
On the bus home from the office – the sweet feeling of not climbing the hills of #tromsø by foot!
More music! http://t.co/YiaNvDbLWG (site in swedish, but should be visible all over. great music!)
@AhmadNo1 I guess you just register a twitter name? :)
@AhmadNo1 just do it! :D
@AhmadNo1 ahaaa! I dont know.
@RickardVargon RNL = rennäringslagen :)
@RickardVargon Not automatically, no. But Riksdagen decided through RNL that u need to be a member to be allowed by to own reindeer though.
@AhmadNo1 send me pics if you do!
@sanderoosterhof true dat! thanks for the reminder, I will defo tell them!
@chriguc not exactly like that, but similar in structure. Ours has turf :)
@RickardVargon the sameby is a way to organise the reindeer herders, as I understand our current legislation.
@RickardVargon some people confuse the name sameby with a place & think it is one specific village or by, but it is more an organisation.
@RickardVargon the sameby/community is a geographical area and a form of economic organisation for reindeer herders.
@RickardVargon well, there might be hard to understand all the terms. The swedish word is sameby and I use the english term community for it
@TheEdSweeney (but thank you for the advice!)
@TheEdSweeney sorry to disturb your stream, you can unfollow the rest of the week and maybe next curator will be less active ;)
@trainjm will do my best! let me know if there is something spec. you wanna hear about :)
@rblaugranaa säg till om ni är ett gäng som är seriöst peppade på det. jag är här & ni kommer ALLTID va välkomna å hälsa på.
@sushi_goat glad to hear!
@carlsewall sorry didnt mean to seem rude :)
@tomasfinger oh yes! good one!
@matthewddsg reindeer and caribou are different though. :) never seen caribou IRL but I hear they behave & are different.
I grew up living in a traditional hut or tent during the summers, & in a wooden house during the winters. Will try to find a pic (@Arizon)
@Piebelleri quite amazing, huh?
@Nestor076 then yeah, some. we understand each other partly between some of the sami languages. better between some, less between some.
@va_ellen no idea but hope you find some!
Our lifestyles are all sami. We are one people, even if the government had some weird ideas about how we ”should” be ages ago.
So: my family are mountain reindeer herders. Others might be forest herders. Again others might not have any reindeer but fish & hunt.
Which has had some terrible effects, with people being badly treated for not being ”real” reindeer herders. SO SILLY.
It has been a misunderstanding that mountain reindeer herding is the ”real” way of doing it, due to government treatment of the samis.
There is also forest reindeer herding, they don’t migrate to the mountains at all. (@smamat @rattrayc)
It only means that I belong to what we call ”fjällsamer” in swedish; mountain reindeer herders. (@smamat @rattrayc)
I host this account until Sunday, then I’m back on my ordinary one @ylvapavval (@TheHorseamf)
@sofiahelene mine too! they are HOT
@mattiaswac LOVE that you share kitok with me! We are family. I’ll post it so the others can see it as well!
@daniellinski like them a lot! lovikkavantar <3 and my grandparents live in gällivare!
Short explanation is that you become a member of a sameby if your parents are, or if you marry a member. (@subm3rge @snowyduerre)
According to current legislation in sweden a person can only own reindeer if member in a sami community (sameby) (@subm3rge @snowyduerre)
@sebastianruholl it is very expensive to use helicopters indeed, so we try to limit the use of helicopters as much as we can.
@Mocko500 oh! thanks!
My traditional dress is made by hand, by a superhero in disguise as my mother :D (@josecarlosliria)
@digital_human you have? I like you!
@A_BoxOfRain that is wonderful, thank you for telling me about it. :D
@MoertinWestin good to hear we share the same view on it!
@coralteal glad to hear it :D
@boniruth good to hear you also get to keep your hands warm during cold winter days :D
@DMRI05 I didnt in the beginning, but I’m learning how to do it now so I dont have to repeat the same answers to many different ppl :)
@TerttuEE Lovikkavantar <3 pretty!
They used to be good shoes for our winters! Now with new weather due to climate change it is not always cold enough to use them (@antpantss)
@realthulsadoom I can if I have to, but I have not knitted that much… and I am no knitter at all compared to my mother ;)
@ormiga indeed ;)
Mother calling correcting my former tweets about gloves! I gotta upload the pics again…. woop!
@Arizon I dont have names for it!!! but I would love to tell you.
@cairosue cool! I have my british home in derbyshire :))
We can care for our reindeer. There is no other. (If it changes I will know the answer on your question @Fondacey :)
@Hispano_Viking close enough :)
We slaughter the reindeer. That’s how they are sold. ;-) (@Fondacey @DonGiovanna)
In Sweden every reindeer is owned by someone. They are considered private property I guess. (@Fondacey @DonGiovanna)
Not sure if it’s just my family, me, my community or a sámi thing. #bednaga
And to me that is very weird and rather disturbing. #bednaga
Difference in my view on that compared to ppl outside my community, as strangers can come up and want to socialise with my dog #bednaga
What I know though is that I am also raised not to bother about other peoples dogs. They are not my family. #bednaga
There are breeds that are esp. good for herding reindeer – but I dont know too much about them #bednaga
A good working dog can be more help than any collegue #bednaga
I am raised with having our dogs as a part of our family, like other family members. #bednaga
Oh by the way! I forgot to tell you some things about how we raise the dogs #bednaga
@Dayreamer a working dog is so happy ;)
@antipodeanharpi will do!
@josecarlosliria that is when I’m going pro on fighting instead of office work :)
@HortusLudi glad u like it!
@Bergsbestigaren but soon….
@realthulsadoom and her fur is the softest EVER
@ormiga bednaga is the julevsáme word for dogs :)
@skudryavtsev I think 8-5, but I never had a job like that…
@Travelpen I will! ;)
@thelittlepakeha I work full time with festivals in Tromsø so I spend my holidays at home, helping out.
Well. We had to start going to #Jokkmokk where school was when we was old enough to start school. :( (@luhugerth)
@cairosue rivers, lakes, wonderful areas with good pasture for the reindeer!
@sbartelt tough and very rewarding, if it’s at all similar to our lives :D
We do reindeer herding through our own companies. It’s our private businesses and got ”nothing” to do with the government. (@snowyduerre)
You cannot compromise the herding and try to make it fit into a 8-5 day job. The animals and the weather will decide. (@snowyduerre)
It’s really important to understand that if you are a reindeer herder or owner, than the animals are always most important (@snowyduerre)
My mother is employed for the municipality I think, my brother work for a local company, my father do & sell handicraft f.e. (@snowyduerre)
and it’s still like that. People combine different jobs to get money, have fun & be able to live the lives they want! (@snowyduerre)
I think that people in the north never used to do only one thing, but has always been entrepreneurs in a way; doing lots (@snowyduerre)
@cairosue it is yeah, dry bits to make the fire start easy.
@snowyduerre no I am not related to all of them. Im not sure about characteristics – some say we look in a spec. way, some say we dont.
@cairosue where do you live?
@lmadeleinei hurra! tack för att du säger det!
@seacliffbroome will think about it a bit & answer later!
My father & brother take care of my reindeer as I am living away. I go home & help them when I can. (@DonGiovanna)
I work in a town with 70 000 people, I am a project leader working with film & music festivals. (@DonGiovanna)
Spending a summer in #staloluokta can be stressing for those who are not used to being offline. It’s a digital detox.
And we make fire if it’s cold in #staloluokta. We dont need any lights at all as we have the midnight sun = daylight all night through.
No electricity in #staloluokta means that we dont depend on it. We use gas for cooking if its a warm day.
….when you have to carry every litre up a hill to get it home :)
And we fetch water for washing up etc from a lake or stream nearby. #staloluokta makes you aware of how much water one can waste in a day..
We fetch fresh water every morning from a cold spring nearby. We choose our places to live where there is good water supplies. #staloluokta
More about our lives in our summer home #Staloluokta. There is no running water there, so we use dry toilet. (@DonGiovanna)
@KhalidSiddeeq It is indeed! I am very rich living in this area.
Let me know if you make it to Padjelanta folks! I will be happy to welcome you if I am there. I tweet as @ylvapavval, so tell me there!
Padjelanta is the name of the national park, and the trek up there is beautiful. Some info http://t.co/JKJrrwvMAl (@madthingy)
The trek up to my mountain home is called Padjelantaleden in swedish (the Padjelanta trail). (@madthingy)
@mybell50 thanks!!! you know anything about slaughtering them? really interested in different ways of butchering them.
@H3MBY nope. should I?
@grainreader in Staloluokta where I live during the summers: not warm. In Jokkmokk: a bit warmer…
@alexelliott I would say one crucial thing is the changes in climate and how our nations manage to adapt to them.
@jacobskelton thanks! was a tough one :D
@Hispano_Viking haha nope, tell me!
@CristinaLatinaa makes me proud and happy to hear! welcome back :)
@nathanrodger She is the best friend. <3 (GOD I MISS HER)
Here is a really good site about reindeer herding globally, where you find more info about how we are organised: http://t.co/C19kdrn7pd
My community is both the geographical area where we work, and the herders working within that area. #tuorpon (@rattrayc)
I belong to the community Tuorpon (community = sameby in swedish, gielda in sámi) and we are quite a few reindeer herders there (@rattrayc)
I own my reindeer, but I keep them wintertime together with my family, and during the summer together with my community (@rattrayc)
@thelittlepakeha Maybe it is a database that regional authority have. All the marks are registered so I guess they got them all somewhere.
@pgpg4589 bom dia! :D
@karinhedet glad to hear it Karin!
@rattrayc tiny bits!
@boniruth that is so cool!
@vimsig JA FÖR TUSAN!!! Det är ju min hood!
@menehunemedia I agree. good stuff!
@HimawariChibi happy to hear it!!
@can_senel sorry I dont know what intelligible is… :/
@Nestor076 sorry but what does intelligibility mean?
@Nestor076 will you have the chance to learn your language now?
Moa is trained not to bother when she sees the reindeer, and she does not help us when herding the animals. #bednaga
@andreasviklund JA kan du inte maila över lite länkar på fb? på div. stuff som bör delas.
She’s not a herding dog though, so she doesn’t work independent with herd. She can help from the back to get them moving forward #bednaga
Anyway, she is a mix of different breeds and she is a working dog, helps us with hunting moose/elks and herd the reindeer #bednaga
Lajo is a rather small lady. She is a mix of different breeds & I think she & her siblings has two fathers (is that even possible?) #bednaga
#bednaga is btw julevsáme word for dogs :)
I see I got quite a few questions about our dogs so I will tell you some more about my family’s dogs with the hashtag #bednaga
And I who got to prepare for tomorrow’s board meeting for work.
But I’m not sure if I will have energy enough in my arms even to type words on the computer today. #officework
Had good guidance from Erika, an instructor at the local martial arts centre https://t.co/CEzNoCI0ha
Here’s our routine today! http://t.co/5Hgcdyo9TR
I managed seven pushups today! On my toes, no cheating with knees down. Only a few weeks since I ska my first one. Getting stronger aight.
@tony_f70 prequels! (Just kidding haven’t seen any) ;)
I gotta leave for morning training before Im too late, but I answer you all in a few hours again when Im back at the computer.
Bomb me with questions!
And this is how it look on the inside. Some sleep, some work. All in the same room like in traditional buildings. http://t.co/Qo9TIzzVoA
The baby follow her mother, and the mother has our mark. That is how we know who of the reindeer are ours.
The main task during this time of the year is to find the new born reindeer (born in may) and mark them with our mark in their ears.
We go out with helicopters, bikes and/or by foot to gather them to big corrals.
We use the helicopter when we gather the animals. The reindeer are free and graze in big areas during the summer.
We go up to Staloluokta after midsummer. I prefer walking there, but I had injured a foot -12 & went by helicopter: http://t.co/FBAOD0r6Np
I start off with now some pics before work, & if u keen on seeing something specific I try to find pics from that after work tonight.
Now the juicy stuff; I will share some summer pics from Staloluokta & the work we do around there.
#laponialove hey! :)
”It is the largest area in the world (and one of the last) with an ancestral way of life based on the seasonal movement of livestock.”
Our winter home is #Jokkmokk in the woods, and I started this week with posting some pics from there.
And we moved between different places throughout the year, depending on where the animals grazed at the time.
Any specific you wanna hear about in my language julevsámegiella by the way? Basic introduction, or something else? Let me know.
I will record & share some julevsámegiella for you tomorrow if I figure it out with soundcloud. Thanks for many good advices on that!
@Nestor076 you are right! there are many different sámi languages :)
Is it possible to record sound and post here on twitter btw? I could record some talking in the #goldenlanguage for you if you want to!
@misterjorgensen I liked it a lot! shared it on my first day curating the account. :) do you agree with me, did you like it too?
@DoctorMounir it is yes!
@faderskepp hehe. I think you saw just right! :D
The language I speak is called Julevsámegiella, and is the language spoken in Jokkmokk, where I come from. #goldenlanguage
Sámi is the language of the indigenous ppl in Europe & I will share some links to online resource where to learn our #goldenlanguage
Obs! RT @logangamble: Noted, when in Europe a pissed off elk is a serious problem. Moose worry me more than bears.
@mybell50 haha what is it?
@Nestor076 up the hills?
@YasmineR2D2 I only just started (in september) but I already see how it helps me in so many ways in my life! less stress. more confidence.
@vcederberg åh älskade du, nu gjorde du mig gråtfärdig! tack!
@AdamOutside it does something to u! it’s a bit like wearing our traditional clothing. you get a straight back & stand steady on your feet!
@YasmineR2D2 did you stop with the kung fu or are you still doing it? what is it like?
@HrmnShane me neither. but I do now! we have wrestling competition in town on saturday, I will tweet some pics from there!
@HrmnShane BAM BAM BAM!
@YasmineR2D2 did you practice also wrestling/grappling?
@justme277 dont have hunting license, no. But my father hunts elk.
@HrmnShane not heard of it, nope.
I haven’t tried judo yet but there are some judo people training with us. They throw me around & take me down in very painful ways. @Beum87
I never did martial arts before @Beum87, but I wanted to fight. So a friend brought me to a cellar where people were rolling… & I loved it.
@greenleanings nicey! my dad is a sami ninja (not doing martial arts, just in his way of being), maybe I got some of it from him…
@Emmaleigh504 don’t make me homesick! norwegian coffee sucks compared to swedish :D
@OskayTheSnake hehe no. but I eat organic veg to my reindeer meat :D
@ormiga yeah maybe!
@Beum87 Now learning wrestling, BJJ and MMA (norwegian style) as well. And tomorrow Im trying boxing for the first time!
@Beum87 no worries, I tweet so much these days its hard to read everything I write. Yeah I started grappling in september.
I’m not the right person to describe the taste of reindeer meat sorry @miranda_maybe. I grew up with it so it’s my most basic taste I guess.
I eat reindeer & elk meat from home, as well as fish bought locally @miranda_maybe. I dont buy or eat other types of meat.
@anilGerdem åh, zlatan <3
@HrmnShane white. a bit too white if you ask the guys I roll with ;)
@JanJoostBouwman ps. Im glad you like them! Will show more later this week – got so many different ones!
@JanJoostBouwman she makes them and sell to people locally :) but it takes a long time to make good mittens/gloves!
@anderstlind hahahhaha JAAA – gentleman!
@AdamOutside tatami. my first one ever! I am so proud! Like a kid who wanna wear the new favourite pyjamas in school as well….
@greenleanings never heard of ninjutsu, what is it?
@poyermet YES! cheers!
@koivistofalck friends of yours!
@MountainHerder I save this question & will try & find some links!
@HimawariChibi thank you! it made my day, I am so happy for them. Left them at the office so they will cheer me up tomorrow as well.
@tapedhands it made me cry. such a sweet thing!
@TheUppsalaKoala hahaha funny :)
@matthewddsg good damn questions! I need to think about them before I answer, remind me again tomorrow night if I havent replied before ok?
@BlitzComics24H oh my! I would LOVE some MMA flowers from a fella!
@Fondacey haha I saw that one, funny. :)
@FerrioliAndrea I like what I hear!
@tanyabraaksma did you see them? :D was from my best friend & her husband!
@dubac0 not married.
Now, how to tie that belt..
Got a new gi for tonights brazilian jiu jitsu practice! Excited!
From my best friend and her husband, sending me some love on an ordinary wednesday. Fantastic! http://t.co/gRjPcKUjp9
Even my name on it! So the flower shop didn’t give to the wrong person – someone actually wanted me to have these!?? http://t.co/j1b4gVzAWG
Can’t wait to find out! I’m off to the local flower shop to get those flowers myself… updates will come (maybe, if I don’t get shy).
…and who thought I better get some flowers that are actually alive & kicking…
@tanyabraaksma I need to find out. Will let you know as soon as I know!
@akendeall AHA! That might be it!
@Gswedes good one!
@korikisulda oops :/
@B_M_Marouen is it? I better find out!
@dubac0 nope. but some construction workers digging deep!
@amberdemure never been to SXSW but some of collegues have, they say I just have to go one year! got nothing like it here.
@tommieohlson it is! when even I get ok pics – the scenery is too stunning to be able to take bad pics!
@willpickens oh I didnt know that, will try to check that the youtube links work all over before I link next time!
@ripnils I know. We miss him. </3
@FerrioliAndrea wonderful! ever coming back or was it once in a lifetime?
@ormiga some discrimination, yeah.
@Nestor076 no, its quite warm in tromsø, around -1 Celsius :/ Jokkmokk got colder winters! :D
@ClaesBell oh that is so pretty! thanks for sharing claes!
@cganders my mum is a good knitter I tell ya! More glove tweets to come :D
@korikisulda do you do martial arts?
@B_M_Marouen you are a lucky man if you get flowers several times!!!
Who could it be? And why now? Did I do something good? Is there something to celebrate? And WHY flowers?
They tried to deliver it at home when I wasn’t there and now I am soooo curious.
Ok folks. Someone has sent me flowers.
…and I think that he is a tiny bit impressed with me being #sweden this week.
Meeting with @LasseLauritz!
Great meeting btw, planning for a workshop with the staff of @insomnia_fstvl. We move to a new venue this year, very exciting!
I’m still not used to the open water & snowy mountains next to each other. We don’t get that in Jokkmokk. Pretty but weird to me!
Went for a meeting in the city centre & had to take this photo for you to see. http://t.co/sztqKh9Zmt
@ripnils it would yes. Yngve <3
Was gonna take a pic through the window so u get to see the beautiful view but eeehhhh… needs some cleaning first. ;)
Not the best shot, but here’s my office! Located in pretty little Skansen, Tromsøs old town. Im on 2nd floor. http://t.co/VL5NUn0kqo
@hej_lingden ba göre!
we learn english from when we start school, so lots of people speak english. @MC_Odd
not sure to be honest how it is living in sweden without speaking swedish, maybe some of my followers can tell? @MC_Odd
Du får mig att le!
@josecarlosliria warmer :)
Off to the office! #samdrift
@greenleanings you are brave!
My auntie lives in Gothenburg, so I guess it’s possible to have a good life down there as well ;) but nothing like the north <3 @ReneeGoth
YEAH! Gonna start following you from my private account to get some fighting boost @elinbladh!
@lwrocks thanks Laurel! Let me know if you want me to tweet about anything specific! :D
@Nestor076 but no norrlandsguld? :)
@afifplc nope, sorry. who is it?
@korikisulda last night I tried wrestling with the wrestling club here. Still haven’t tried judo, but been thrown around a lot by judo ppl!
@tatianae9 my mother was an exchange student in Mexico when she was 17 and we have family relationship with her host family since then :)
@fuckingswede kom norrut! :D
@MarineBill66 makes me proud to hear!
I guess it can be such an intense experience seeing the northern lights that u might actually ”hear” things as well. @qui_oui
Nope, no snow here in may/june that I know of. @wrossmck
@oppaheida kul! fina vägar att springa längs :) (var på morgontur igår i solen!)
@OskayTheSnake Oh, I posted the pic too late. I took it at 6 pm, by the time I posted it is was dark outside!
@d_p_m_d kul. hälsa!
@I_am_europe did you just draw that! hahahah
@erik_hansson im glad you follow!
Before we went down (didn’t smile that much on the way down I tell you). Let’s see how much I dare to ski this year! http://t.co/fRN3RQWRMi
I started skiing last year & here’s from our last trip up a mountain. We didn’t climb up high, as I was so scared! http://t.co/v6S5uoi4R2
Here’s some snow from Tromsø for ya! The pic is taken a year ago – we don’t have this much snow right now. http://t.co/GGYsFW62E8
Woke up an hour before my alarm went off, thinking of all them things I need to master before I can do my first MMA fight.
Ps how to be able to share tonights northern lights with you? My camera cannot. Words cannot.
Tomorrows practice gonna be brazilian jiu jitsu. With my first ever gi. Excited! #bjj
Strong and fearless. Or at least brave enough to face those fears. (For me that means handstand as a start..)
I’m gonna be like them. Throwing people around. #wrestling
I went for #wrestling practice as well tonight. Its my 2nd time tryin it out, & I think I will continue. The people there are well strong.
Im such a beginner at #MMA but it is sooo much fun! Today we kicked lots at the practice. Strong legs, good balance. (Thats where Im headin)
Walking home. The view from Romssasuolu (norwegian Tromsøya) towards the next island Sállir (norwegian Kvaløya). http://t.co/bi8E6f5ieK
Walking home. http://t.co/fwp2e3rcIJ
@PerUtterback TACK! det är mitt mål. att göra skillnad!
@PerUtterback åh. du, det här gläder mig så mycket att höra.
@andreasviklund hahaha lagooooona! <3
@MrSan it will be a bit too much for you to read all of it.
@MrSan oh no, Im sad to hear that! is it too much for you to get on my page & read it afterwards? I guess I tweet so much right now
Yeah I’ve been to Stockholm quite a lot before, but not anymore. Too far south. ;) @Freddibed
@JaneMahony thanks jane!
That is only how I grew up, not all the samis ;-) @DonGiovanna
Ok folks I LOVE how interested you are in our language! Which # should I use when I tweet online resources etc for you to learn?
@MrSan retweeted some good links before but cant find them now. I will try to find them again and post them.
@PerUtterback tack för att du säger till om mig! hojta om du vill läsa om nåt speciellt :)
@andreasviklund SUPER! Skicka fler jokkmokks-länkar om du har. I share. Och påminn mig om det är nåt jag glömmer att berätta om/ta med!
@Fondacey yeah there are quite big differences between the different sámi languages :)
Good you keep asking @DonGiovanna! Im so glad that people want to find out about us. We need the world to know & understand.
@TweetsNotTwits thanks for the shout! :) hope you enjoy it and let me know if I get boring or you wanna know anything specific.
@DonGiovanna no reservations, no.
@6Miss_BR9 me too!
Now I just want to re-learn my language. The feeling of talking it is like as if I stopped lying. It’s very emotional. @DonGiovanna
I speak sámi with my father and swedish with my mother but I didn’t speak sámi at all for many years! @DonGiovanna
I grew up speaking both julevsámegiella and swedish, but swedish is my first language. @DonGiovanna
I know! Further north than Sweden actually. I love the north. <3 @MarkWRoberts11
@datadivajf never heard about us being related language-wise so dont think so.
@dalzs estuve una vez en D.F. y fuimos a lázaro cárdenas con mis abuelitos mexicanas. I LOVED IT!
@Toby_Hancock get on the language train babe! I use my personal twitter lots for practicing, twitter is perfect for using new languages :D
@josecarlosliria no es mi blog, sólo esrcribi dos entradas alla, porque no tengo un blog :)
My people, the sámi, live in Sápmi, which is a land area crossing four countries :) @ormiga
Yup. I live in Tromsø in Norway, and I come from Jokkmokk in Sweden. We are not that bothered about nation borders here. @ormiga
Good to hear, Ofelaš is one of my favourites as well! Haven’t seen it in a long time though. @zombivish
yeah @daveasaurus_ . (not sure what umlauts are though? sounds like something that tastes good but are a bit chewy?)
We are doing our best to make sure our languages are alive & kickin! @libyaamazigh101
pero casi nunca hablo español ahora… tengo que practicar más! @josecarlosliria
@thunderstormbun good question then :D
Also the grammar and way of building up sentences etc are completely different in swedish/english and julevsámegiella. @DonGiovanna
One example, the word for day; ”dag” in swedish, ”biejvve” in julevsámegiella, ”päivä” in finnish (I think) @DonGiovanna
Julevsámegiella is not related to swedish, norwegian or danish. Completely different! Sami languages are related to finnish :) @DonGiovanna
@d_p_m_d MEN så fett! pratar hon finska/meänkieli? min morfar är från gällivare & pratar meänkieli, det är mitt nästa språk å lära!
We have many different sami languages, and mine is one of the smaller one. But it’s such a wonderful language! @Fondacey
My language is called julevsámegiella. In swedish they call it lulesamiska. In english I’d just call it sami language I guess. @Fondacey
@hejjet it was a wonderful moment! the best thing was how dad actually stopped for me to take the pic isntead of getting on with work ;)
Could have been! But it was just me holding the tree for a bit. @hejjet
@doppifity good luck finding out! It’s worth so much knowing one’s heritage, and getting strength from it!
@ormiga sorry a bit too many word plays in that tweet, didn’t get what you meant? :)
@DMRI05 oh! thanks mate! this must be my favourite tweet so far. let me know if I get boring ;)
@pebbe indeed :)
there are lots of sami musicians, check out sofia jannok, niillas holmberg, slincraze, violet road, among others! :) @pebbe
I speak Julevsámegiella, Swedish, English, Spanish. Read & write Norwegian as I live here now. @mybell50
@indigocat good shot!
@anderstlind bra ide! Ska se va jag hittar.
my brothers name is Keira, that is a sami name from my region @thunderstormbun :)
ylva is an old Swedish name @thunderstormbun, it means female wolf (ish). The male version of it is Ulf.
@svknco if u wonder then it’s te for you to find out! If you find Sámi relatives then you got It I guess
@mann_vs_brot Hehe not that keen really :p
@niksunen yeah! Never cook reindeer meat without any fat, makes it dry and tasteless
@daybrett don’t know what it is sorry
MMA = mixed martial arts yup! :) @JustJimWillDo
Now: some work & MMA practice. Let me know what you guys are up to til I log in next time!
@AydeeMaybrew so a good time for me to learn to surf :D
COOL @matthewddsg! I’m up for helping you find out how! lets keep the conversation going this week and hope you find your call.
@AydeeMaybrew …I was thinking about november or december…
I think one of the most important things I can do in my life is to stay kind to others. :) @GoldenTalon
@MWhalan sorry I don’t understand the question. What does ”traditional call” mean?
everything I need to know mate! @niksunen
@MsMorticiaFrump haven’t seen it sorry. did you like it?
@8Nov88 normal :) my mother is swedish, father sami. some say we look the same, some say we look different. Im not sure.
too big question to answer in a row of tweets @cganders, but if you keep following u’ll find out enough to start making up your own opinion
@doppifity you are a mix of indigenous & settlers. Not much else to choose from ;)
@doppifity do you know, I believe its the same in the north of sweden. I think that if you are from up north then
@AydeeMaybrew and I have never been to cape town, but one of my very best friends live there and I am so keen on coming for a visit!
Herding reindeer and herding (drunk) people in a festival area are not similar though… the reindeer behave far more intelligent ;)
You need to be mentally strong and used to both the intense periods and the slow ones. You need to be able to rest when you can.
You need to rely on your colleagues, be able to communicate well with them and coordinate the work as efficient as possible.
Festivals are project based work, with intense work periods as well as crucial time for rest. So is the year with the herd as well.
People who have not done reindeer herding or arranged festivals might think those two things are far from each other. But they are close.
I have no degree in this or that. The most relevant education I have is the practical work in my community Tuorpon, working with reindeer.
I love the thrill of organising events, giving people the chance of having the best time together with friends. #samdrift
My work page is http://t.co/glAwMnZD0R, but posts there are mainly in swedish or norwegian. Interesting for those into arranging festivals!
So right now: off-festival season for me. Time for twitter….
Next bigger festival coming up is @Buktafestivalen in July. Beautiful setting, good music! And wonderful crew <3
I share what the festivals are good at, and help them access each others knowledge. Making cooperation easier :)
Now I run a project called Samdrift, working with festival organisations, how to make them better&how they can find good ppl to work with.
I moved to Tromsø more than 2 years ago, started off at the Døgnvill festival, moved on to produce the youth film festival @NUFFGlobal
My role in the festival was to be a part of the volunteer team; organising & taking care of the 300+ volunteers making the festival possible
My life are the reindeer & my heritage alright, but for a living I work with some great music & film festivals in Tromsø.
Lunch break is over & it’s about time I tell you about my job.
@dubac0 hehe sorry, no reindeer skin coming from here. But there might be some web shop where you can buy it!
but I think the sami parliament in sweden this week had something up about it; how they try to get more sami language teachers @matthewddsg
well when I grew up my swedish mother was my sami language teacher at times when we didnt have any qualified teachers.. @matthewddsg
@dubac0 will watch the video later & post it if I like it! thanks for the heads up :D
@cganders cheers! give me a shout if you are keen on something spec. :)
@JonnaCecilia brilliant! I grew up in Jokkmokk and live summertime in the mountains around Kvikkjokk :)
schools dont usually offer sami language for students @QQ_ZZZ. If you are a sami you have the right to study it but we lack teachers.
@dubac0 aha, I have not heard anything about it. What is it & why, do you know?
Is there any research about sami culture within topic intercultural communication? #askmattias – sorry but its not his field of expertise :/
Most important thing 4 us is to preserve&keep to ourselves cultural characteristics as a people; like language, reindeer herding, clothing.
Question: What are the struggles of maintaining cultural identity as a ‘nation’ across four political states for the Sami? #askmattias
But we are facing challenges right now. If sami youth just stay strong Im convinced we deal with those challenges successfully. #askmattias
I hope they can continue taking part in forming the sami society that they want to live in. #askmattias
I am hopeful. I see lot of talent, skills & ambition in the sami youth. #askmattias
What are your hopes for Sami youth? #askmattias
how their society should look like & develop so that these issues are not determined by other peoples. #askmattias
#askmattias What does decolonization mean for you? Basically that all peoples are allowed to be free & determine themselves
Did you @JonnaCecilia! Maybe we played!
@Scode83 its quite refreshing! :)
@JonnaCecilia yeah makes me so happy!
@MsTeratophilia whats NDN?
@snellinkM thanks :))
@louisvzla pero está rica la semla!!
@danifarias don’t know much about bunad sorry, but let me know if u find out :D

@snellinkM really? where did you go? you got any pics?
@KasperNordeng hahahah. Who does! (Just got back to Tromsø after a wekk down south)
@rollspelosofen please do! I think its the best way to meet & talk to people & find out. Also there might be a sameførening where you live?
@KymriskaDraken true that, or at least true that uppsala also has been reindeer herding ground :)
@ArchedEyebrowBR thanks! :) I hope I will keep your interest this week.
@exlibris yeah, will share them throughout the week! :)
yeah I shared the video last night – amazing one @ChristaVdK! Its a bit like when we work yeah :) (but never seen it from above before!)
@smamat cool! buoris!
my mother is a non-sami swede, and I love her highly! ;) @svknco
We are indigenous, like our brothers & sisters who are native americans & native/indigenous ppl all over the world :) @svknco
@gehr haha love it! sporty :)
@svknco ja :)
depends on who you ask @thunderstormbun! but mostly for special occasions like parties, funerals etc
@Meijer2224 spikes under my shoes! broddar in swedish, not sure what they are called in english…
@juniperlilacs there’ll defo be reindeer!
Where do you live @rollspelosofen? I would love it if swedes who live outside of the sami area come to the north during holidays & such!
Thank God for Google! I am so happy that I can tell people to find out easy now :) @ImGarrick
about us is that sami kids has to always explain & defend who we are, why we are who we are, and why we have the right to be us @ImGarrick
Åh, I know @ImGarrick! Not even I learned much about us in school and I grew up in a sami community! A consequence of ours schools quietness
@BenDurkee I know – really cool. Do you know where they were from?
@KasperNordeng travel faster than me! where to?

@lokkomotion hehe jo, men så fastnade jag här framför twitter och glömde helt av.. nu är den i ugnen iallafall! rapport kommer ;)
@BanarSabet tack! jag gillar’t asså!
@EuanJOConnor muhahahha. loveit!
@Cunobaros i like it!
@Lillebaer heheheh. but why more awesome? just tried it once so far & really enjoy it, but not more than the grappling..
@Gogzs :D :D :D and it does! I was in love the first months, now its a bit calmer but its still the best feeling ever.
@Toernis oooh… be patient… thats gonna be the hard bit.
@Toernis not that I know of, but we are a few samis in my club, and they have developed their style a bit… :)
@MajdaAJ thanks for the shout!
@JimBarrett HAHAHAH! Im such a beginner!!!
@indigocat I’m up for it! whats yours for tomorrow?
@neworb yeah? you feeling so now, or before? what did/do you do about it, if anything?
@Loke1104 not choking them, but we wrestle them a bit, yeah. gives you really steady balance once you get the hang of it!
Any of my followers who do grappling/BJJ/MMA/Judo/wrestling? Whats your advice for a beginner who want to get good?
Now I’m so comfortable spending time in the cellar with my fellow fighters in TSI Basketak.
It took 3-4 months before I learnt the names of the people I rolled with. And before I stopped being scared every time I went down there.
I had no idea what we were doing or if it had a name. I didn’t know anyone in the cellar, and I didn’t want to find out.
So a friend invited me to join him fighting in a cellar at the university of #tromsø after the summer holidays. I was SO scared.
I felt I was just being nice all the time, and it made me rather shallow. Uninteresting. Uninterested.
I have a good job, live in a nice flat, healthy family & have lots of free time. I was getting boring as I didn’t challenge myself everyday.
It was almost a year ago I started to want to stop being so darn comfortable.
@standupmackan aight! how was the mma matches? I wanna go as well but am so fresh. cant stop thinking about it.
@luhugerth they say so. the reindeer is the most amazing animal <3
@nummer8sfru åh fina!
@pebbe will post some summer pics as well one day this week :) so you get to see the summertime work of reindeer herders!
@pebbe we were kick-arse skiers!
@stickigt you find some stuff in swedish if u google her! she’s nerdy when it comes to it & wants to share what she has found with others :)
@sunrayswench <3 thanks for the love!
@SheepOfJesus Kul att du lär dig svenska! :D
@Eraxley will see if I find any videos with explanation on the differences. have you done greek-roman wrestling?
@Eraxley there was quite a lot of differences. Didn’t proof read the wiki article on grappling before I posted it so not sure if its correct
@Eraxley I think its more technical, at least that is what they tell me. Tried greek-roman wrestling for the first time last week and
@standupmackan I’m back! Have you rolled a long time? I only started in september with no-gi, now trying out BJJ & MMA & love every bruise!
@standupmackan COOL! lets talk more about it later!
oh, grappling: http://t.co/hm68Xlx715
I enjoy this enormously but I just gotta get my arse to my #grappling practice before I’ll be late. See you in a few bruises!
@RSPK69 och detta är ju bara början av veckan; än är det förväntan i luften!
@MountainHerder they breed on their own :)
I will explain it in some tweets later on @MountainHerder!
Hehe. We don’t tell @MountainHerder. Tried to google an explanation for you but couldnt find anything written about it in english.
hehe no need for that @datadivajf. the reindeer are made for the cold! we are the ones who might freeze a bit (weill, not my dad, but me).
@Frenetisk yup. If you’re honest and strong at walking, and can help out a bit when needed ;)
@maostlund thanks for the shout out! :)
@Nestor076 my fathers winter home was near a lake, could be the same almost :)
@RSPK69 (och med den där frågan som hänger kvar; blir det bra? äre värt det?)
@RSPK69 hahahaha. jepps. x 68 000.
@Nestor076 hahah yeah could be road at home ey!
@PParfa per-isak!! :)
@RSPK69 jag e starstruck av mig själv. Är det så det känns att stå på scen?
@RSPK69 hehehe ;)
haha thanks @raghu_shadow! let me know if you heading this way and I will share some of this way of life with you.
Yes we are samer/sami @Eraxley :) I come from Jokkmokk and belong to the family Pavval, from Tuorpon sameby/community.
@LittleF89 move over here! where do you live now?
Yes @raghu_shadow, but it is ten million times worse to see my reindeer getting killed by a car/train or by a predator, or to see it starve.
Glad to hear she wanted to be a reindeer herder @sunrayswench. It’s the best life I could ever imagine. <3
We would have problems with wolves if they came to our area @sunrayswench, but we dont have any wolves living here.
@Nestor076 does it? show me a pic! I have never been there.
Cool @MountainHerder! My dad used to keep goats as well & bring them to the mountains during the summer. But he stopped before I was born.
åh, they reindeer are not large at all @chau_s! They are petit & so beautiful! Elks are the big ones. And caribou in Canada are also big.
hm, yeah. I will try to remember to see if someone sell mittens/gloves. remind me if i forget will you @DonGiovanna?
thanks @josecarlosliria! it’s a great life, you should definitely take the chance to join a reindeer herder if u ever get the chance :)
But it can also be that there isnt much lichen left in that area, or that they/others have grazed there before. @DonGiovanna
Cannot access the grazing because of for example a thin ice layer under the snow. They cannot dig through it. @DonGiovanna
There are some small butcher’s that buy from us, and sell it on to shops, restaurants etc.
We slaughter only two times during a year; in september (bulls) and in december. My family sell locally. @KristoferA
I understand from the response that I will have to do some more knit-tweeting before this week is over! @MargTheQueen
@Sami_Y_saad hahaha that is so cool! but in swedish we are called ”same” so thats probably why noone told you before.
@gaski I did not plan to! …men det gick inte att undvika…
@MountainHerder true dat! & talking about it – you have a good nick here!
@DonGiovanna nope she doesnt sell them but I linked to one pattern that maybe you can get someone else to make for you? If you dont knit. :)
(..) but if they are calm then we dont have to disturb them. Calm reindeer are grazing reindeer :) @DonGiovanna
(…) if they start moving, then we might herd them in the right direction, to where there is good grazing for them. @DonGiovanna
(…) in one place as long as it has grazing and does not get disturbed. so we check them everyday to make sure they are calm @DonGiovanna
not silly at all @DonGiovanna! during the winter we just want to make sure they have good grazing & keep calm. the reindeer will stay
@dubac0 true dat!
@MHrast please let me know (@ylvapavval) if you knit the gloves, I know my mum would love to hear about it!
@stickigt Erika Nordvall Falck, do you know her?
@MJSAtw or if they are moving towards a road, or where we know that the grazing wont be as good. we want them to be where they are safe.
@MJSAtw it could for example be if they were heading towards a neighbouring herd and we didnt want them to get all mixed up
@MJSAtw well, if they were moving in a direction where we didnt want them to go, then we would herd them where we want them :)
Woh! There you got a taste from one day of reindeer herding in #jokkmokk, mid-winter style.
Dad like: let’s go this way! Brother just wants more snuff before we continue. http://t.co/qvOc8UKfCI
…we say that the grazing is ”locked” when the reindeer cannot access it. Anyway, time for more pics now!
The reindeer cannot dig through an ice layer on the lichen. They can dig one metre of snow, but if there is a thin layer of ice under it…
This happens a lot with winters like these; where it gets warmer and snow melts, or maybe even rain, and then freeze to ice.
They will also start walking if they cannot graze in the area anymore; like if they cannot access the lichen under the snow.
They will get uneasy and start moving if they get disturbed for example by snow mobiles, predators, cars, people.
The reindeer eat yummie lichens under d snow during d winter. They stay in one area as long as they can graze without getting disturbed.
The reindeer are free. Our job during the winter is to look after our herd and make sure they got good chances to graze & keep calm.
This day we didn’t go closer to the animals than this. They were calm; grazing & relaxing so no need to disturb them. http://t.co/angts3ftkC
(If u like knitting: my mum is a glove pro. She’s found old gloves & made charts for traditional patterns from up north, especially #sami.)
@dubac0 not on the first tweet, but now im posting many pics! :D good to see you here, btw :)
I’ve got used to warm winters in Tromsø so I’m wearing the big hat. Dad is cool as always. He doesn’t get cold. Ever. http://t.co/AQvPT4FArT
More #jokkmokk pics. These are taken at xmas when me, dad & one of my brothers were out working with the reindeer:
@rambleready warms my heart to hear it <3
@8Nov88 yeah think so! lots of people over there with swedish or norwegian heritage so should be some samis as well :)
@8Nov88 I wont find you no job ;) but good luck!
@andreasviklund <3 jokkmokk
@8Nov88 been living there for long? I dont know gothenburg much, only been there a few times. too far south for me :)
@mybell50 who won? ;)
@8Nov88 reindeer :) I know little about deer.
@8Nov88 elk is ok, I usually cook it with some spices and maybe cream. but reindeer is the best! have you tried it?
@8Nov88 you should hook up with the sami association (sameförening) in gothenburg! If there is one :)
@_Galiyan_ sweet. let me know if you want to see something specific! will try to post some pics every day both from jokkmokk & tromsø :)
@SusannaBlaauw theres nothing like it!
@pandora690 Will do!
oh @mybell50! we had a heatwave earlier this winter, followed by many weeks of unusual cold. ”the new weather” as my dad calls it.
@pandora690 wow that is fantastic! Im happy to hear this, thank you for telling me. The world is indeed small. We are one :)
@_Galiyan_ how wonderful! do u live in japan? how did u find this account in the first place?
@pandora690 yeah I know Ánde. :) He’s a good man!
@dankmtl I like Canada!
@I_am_europe muhaha. looking forward to sail through this week with you!
@mybell50 cheers! hows things over there?
@I_am_europe hey Claire! whats up on your end?
@_Galiyan_ YEAH! sorry my ignorance but which language is that? twitter translated it for me so I could read it in english as well.
@realthulsadoom oh! making me nervous here. you give me a shout if you wanna hear about something specific will you?
@nixenji I didnt know I was until media told me! But well fun, and an honour. About time to get some indigenous tweets in here :D

@ianhecht will try to stick to english the rest of the week ;)
@ianhecht haha sorry! just me RT:ing some swedish media who found out Im the first sami to host the sweden account.
@Nestor076 oooooh freezing!
@8Nov88 Oh, u confuse us with the white colonialists conquering the world; they didnt seem to accept too many other cultures. We’re alright.
@8Nov88 OBS not the wolves and bears! you and the sami ;)
@8Nov88 dont know which lifestyle you have, but you might get surprised to see how similar we are each other :)
@8Nov88 who would kill you? the wolverines? :P
@8Nov88 there is no sami nation, so we have norwegian, swedish, finnish or russian passports depending on which side of the borders we live
@8Nov88 yup we do! good your interested, I will probably tweet some interesting stuff for you to read during this week :)
@ChristaVdK sounds and words :)
@mathiasfontana oh! snowy pics will come!
@OlivierHuard cheers. :) have a great day!
@ChristaVdK hahahah! just posted a youtube link for you :)
@OlivierHuard whats your trick to deal with the stress?
@ella_bella_blue (ehhhh…. I was gonna work, right…)
@ella_bella_blue see on your bio that you love tea – give me some inspiration for some black tea to try out! got any favourites?
@ChristaVdK I know, its heartbreakingly beautiful isnt it! Cant stop listen to it, although it makes me too sad. Have you heard jojk before?
@rajanmanick well, I haven’t asked my boss to get free time to tweet… so I better get started with the IRL work here as well!
@OlivierHuard haha. we love it though. where do you live?
@OlivierHuard and my favourite time; the fall! will try to find some summer pics & post so you can see what its like.
@OlivierHuard hehe it might feel like its always winter, but we have some sweet summer months as well! not to mention the lovely spring…
Folks. I know twitter is fun and talking to you is well interesting but I should really get some work done here. #hardtostop
@RiaG7 they are elks! but they are far off so u dont see them properly. the reindeer are smaller, will try to find a pic on them as well :)
@tombness TACK! Shaky legs here…
@nytuan cool :)
@Q0PPA me too :)
@hermanlilleng hehehe. Circa as well but you already knew that I guess….
@Q0PPA I will try to tweet some this week, both useful words & good links for learning. :) My language is called julevsámegiella.
@JimBarrett did you write that?
@wdavid78 where do you live?
@Q0PPA sámastav mån :) yes.
@danifarias brilliant! how does he like it living in sweden?
@wdavid78 …or at least everywhere I have been. :)
@wdavid78 yeah lots of sky around here, we get many ppl who come to see the northerns lights. but they show everywhere in the north!
@KymriskaDraken they stood all still as if they waited for me to capture them. But dad got disappointed they seemed so small on the pic…
@wdavid78 glad you like it! will try to post some more this week, although Im in tromsø right now so cant take any fresh pics this week.
Sharing a moment from this winter; me & dad working with our reindeer – do you spot the elks posing for this pic? http://t.co/7cEhJVGLRW
@nytuan yeah! we probably know each other me and your friends :) jokkmokk is not very big. have you been there?
@mikaelsol hehe yeah! At least if you see us dressed in our traditional clothes/koltar/gábbde. Well colourful! ;)
@DonGiovanna I went to Lofoten for the first time in may, was so beautiful! And tromsø is a good place for vacations. The scenery is great.
@nytuan hurray! :D jokkmokk rocks!
@josecarlosliria and let me know if you do :)
@sejenarki its wonderful isn’t it! Growing up in Jokkmokk made me a strong person & gave me a steady ground. <3
@DonGiovanna cool! let me know during the week if there is something specific you are keen on and I might tweet it for ya!
@josecarlosliria oh, cool! where do you live now?
@itz_Rwin jihaa, hope so! you let me know if I get boring ;)
