NaNu NW Sámi Fest

9:30 am to 8 pm, October 27, 2019

Register now for a full day of talks, walks, fire, food, music, story, and more!

Na nu is an expression meaning “now, then” — used to indicate a shift in direction or focus. We’ll move between auditorium, open field, and old growth forest, we’ll gather in a kitchen and around a Fire Circle, we’ll engage with nature and one another, with speakers from far and near, with new friends and old. We’ll learn about local history, Sámi and Salish plant medicine, and diaspora contributions to our culture. We’ll hear ancient folktales made available only recently in English, and listen to — and learn — the once-forbodden joik.

Guests include Tor and Astrid Tuorda from Sápmi (their film Gállok is screening at the Sámi Film Festival), authors Barbara Sjoholm and Marlene Wisuri, and Duwamish councilmember Ken Workman.

Light refreshments and lunch provided. Dinner may be purchased. A limited number of overnight accommodations are available. Please inquire.

The day’s schedule will be posted online and emailed in October.
