ONLINE: Are You What You Wear?

February 11, 2022 @ 10:30 pm - February 12, 2022 @ 12:00 am

Prof. Thomas DuBois, University of Wisconsin-Madison presents this program about the clear norms of Sámi dress in different regions of Sápmi – the areas of Norway, Finland, and Sweden where Sámi people traditionally reside. But the actual components of the dress vary and they are often made at home by family members rather than purchased from a professional seamstress. This presentation will explore the ways the Sámi use dress to express their identity and the many variations and expressive choices that come into play.

NOTE: this begins at 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time
