The Sami in Norway were subjected for decades to a brutal and oppressive Norwegianisation policy, and denied the right to speak their own tongue. What have the consequences been for the use of Sami in everyday speech and as a literary language? And how does a Norwegian-Sami author choose which language to write in today?
Authors Risten Sokki and Sigbjørn Skåden meet for a conversation, with literature professor Harald Gaski as moderator.
The conversation will be in Norwegian.
