Nordlysseminar: Why are the Sami silent?
«Why are the Sami silent?», Anne Lene Turi Dimpas asks in an article in Nordlys, North-Norwegian Debate. She’s discussing whether the power that lies in protecting oneself and ones family, not to bring shame on the family, avoiding conflicts and not making complaints, have been replaced with Samis rather seeking help and being more open. In the Norwegian society today, a culture of being more open makes it so that everyone is to share problems and secrets with everyone on social media, reality-TV and so forth. Many have had to pay a big prize for their openness. How can we be open without great consequences?
