Barbara Sjoholm is visiting UMD to present on national museums in the Nordic countries. She’ll discuss the establishment of Sámi museums in Norway, Sweden and Finland in the past fifty years and their role in the renaissance of Indigenous Sámi music, duodji (handicraft) and language restoration.

Sjoholm is the author of From Lapland to Sápmi: Collecting and Returning Sámi Craft and Culture (University of Minnesota Press, 2023) and of the recently reissued The Palace of the Snow Queen: Winter Travels in Lapland and Sápmi. A translator of Norwegian and Danish, Sjohom is the recipient of fellowships and awards from the National Endowment of the Arts and the American-Scandinavian Foundation.
