Adjagas - Mun ja mun

Here's a beautiful Sami Song by two very talented singers I saw on Swedish TV last night.

Fantastic post, thank you for bringing it to my attention. In the fast paced information age Native peoples in Canada and around the world are struggling to maintain their heritage. This represents just one of the many reasons why our elders are crying.

In Lak' ech, love drifting away...

Thanks, Mike. Beautiful--I felt drawn into their music. To me, it sounded like some Native American songs--compelling. Pam B

Hello Minu:

Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad that you liked the song and you are most welcome to visit here. My mother is Italian and I know the Italians love of beauty in all things. I too love nature, art, photos, and beautiful music.

Hello Sihirli:

I'm glad you liked the song. It's the feeling in it that is important, so understanding the language is not necessary to be touched by it and eenjoy it. I hope that you have a lovely weekend also.

Hello Pam & welcome:

I'm glad that you liked the song. The Sami people are connected to the Native Inuit of North America going way back. I met a Native American man in Maine and he said that the native people of northern Sweden were his brothers and the same people.

There are many similarities in custom and culture and language.

Take care,

Hello Chris:

There is a reason why the Europeans tried their best to eliminate the Native culture when they came to North & South America to steal the land and resources. It is no different today. First you send in the priests, then the armies.
The new church is perhaps MTV, facebook, American movies & TV, Pharma, Micky D, to destroy the cultures and sicken the people and corrupt the foreigners so that are no longer a threat to make the world of one thought, one culture and one economy so a few can control the strings and benefit. No room for social systems that share and take care of their people. Sweden had a pretty good system but the last 2 government parties in control have been completed corrupted and are now the lap dogs for the ones creating this new world of disorder.

Keep the Faith,
