It intrigued me to watch other videos on the Sami.:smile:
I've watched several now and will post some of the ones I like.
Seen one about 1890s Sami taking reindeer herd to Alaska to
help Alaskan Natives raise and herd them.
Their Sami ancestors are still living up there in Alaska.
sentient I really, really enjoyed these 2 videos
first one is about 6:30 mins. 2nd is almost 30 mins. long.
The Sami people (from "The Winds of the Milky Way", 1977)
The wind is blowing through my heart
Alright then, I have enjoyed our communicating back and forth.
Thanks for putting up with me and my foolishness.:smile:
PS, I have seen the North star and I track the Big dipper
round about. Not sure if you can see it down under.
So just thought I would let you know it is still doing
what it does.
This Youtube channel has both part 1 & 2 of the videos
that talks of the 1890s when the Sami brought reindeer to Alaska
if you are interested.
I guess Nils-Aslak Valkeapää (translated “Whitehead”) coached/influenced people out of the shame (the way our parent’s generation generally never could come out of that trauma).
Also Interesting: “The Sun, My Father”
To my other grandmother, Sun was/is a Goddess (i.e. she) – who gave the Spider a thread so it can move between Earth and Sky/Heaven. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e0/fc...7b89c1bcb0.jpg
But then again, this other gran, - according to some Saami relatives - would have gotten her deity from the Komi/Udmurt reindeer herder ancestry who moved into Lapland and at one point married Saami.
My nondual gran was related to a Valkeapää family, (& sounds like it is the same one) but she held the Eagle to be central to her worldview & not the Central Sun:
So many different local beliefs (even in one family) that one has to chase these around Fennoscandia & half across Siberia & beyond to know where they all came from …
I had watched another youtube documentary about it, but this was interesting also.
Just one thing, that was such an 'odd note' ... weird ...
Part one 21:30 -21:57
.... and the Saami bloke didn't recognize moose antlers?!!!
Where is his identity - in his clothes?
Yeah, I thought that was funny. Elk???? What????
At least they are young and learning.
I had seen something about a bigger Elk than the Moose.
The extinct Irish Elk.... Wow!
I do know many that have their identity in their regalia... Unfortunately.
Amazing historical and Spiritual depiction.
I remember you posted these before.
I like studying them more and more since they keep revealing
things I did not notice before. They remind me of nature,
the more you settle into it the more it reveals.
I am wondering if 1 c is depicting Thunderbirds on the sides??
If not thunderbirds then Goose or Crane becuase of the straight beeks?
Also I will guess 1c is depicting Badger or Wolverine on the bottom
but just guessing...
1 c The 5 skulls on top I would say it depicts the ancestors.
1 c It looks to me Thunderbird heads(4) that surround the central
main head with curved beeks????
I just noticed picture 2 there is a circle at the
anus of the horse. I would assume this is for the value of the use of the feces in fire and or fire keeping.
I could go on with these all day.
Amazing, Amazing. I love pictures and art.
I will let them rest and return to them later.

But then I started thinking … “The Sun, My Father” ?
Hang on … but “Beaivi” (Day, daylight, sun, sunlight) … is a female name.
Which doesn’t mean that some Saami could not have regarded the Central Sun as a Father … instead of a Mother … (I just took it for granted that the Sun is female).
This provided the answer:
Since the Drum is a cognitive map – for me the Centre is the World Pole (nailed in Pole Star) with the Eagle on top. But for Saami it is the Central Sun. In practice though it mounts to the same thing.
Cool, stumbled on this pdf book of info, while looking for sami symbol meanings.
I wonder how accurate it is???
