"Liberating Sápmi: Indigenous Resistance in Europe’s Far North" - Podcast

In this segment of the podcast "By any means necessary", Sean and Jacquie are joined by Gabriel Kuhn, author of "Liberating Sápmi: Indigenous Resistance in Europe’s Far North," and Aslak Holmberg, a salmon fisher, Sámi language teacher, indigenous studies scholar, and vice president of the Sámi Council, to talk about the parallels between treatment of indigenous Sami communities in Europe and indigenous communities here in the U.S., why the requirements of rural living encourage many Sámi to become 'jacks-of-all-trades,' and how efforts to address the symptoms of climate change without solving the root causes can lead to "green colonialism.
