Sweden-based author Gabriel Kuhn will read from his recently released Liberating Sápmi (PM Press, 2020). Based on interviews with Sámi activists, artists, and scholars, this book is an introduction to the ongoing, yet often overlooked, struggle of the Sámi people for self-determination. It also offers irrefutable evidence of the important role the Sámi play in the resistance of indigenous people against an economic and political system whose power to destroy all life on earth has reached a scale unprecedented in the history of humanity.
Gabriel Kuhn is an author, translator, and union activist. He has published widely in English and German. His texts have been translated into more than a dozen languages.
