Arctic Highways

Unbounded indigenous people

 

The knowledge of the indigenous peoples the silent and the silenced knowledge must take its place on the global art map. In Arctic Highways twelve indigenous artists from Sápmi, Canada, and Alaska tell their own story, through their own experiences, using their own forms of expression.

The artists Matti Aikio, Tomas Colbengtson, Maureen Gruben, Gunvor Guttorm, Marja Helander, Dan Jåma, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Laila Susanna Kuhmunen, Meryl McMaster, Britta Marakatt-Labba, Olof Marsja and Máret Ánne Sara invite us to join them on their spiritual and artistic quest to find answers and a sense of community. Together we can embark on a journey along the Arctic highway of culture and life that stretches from the past into the future without ever passing a border.

Arctic Highways contains contributions by Tomas Colbengtson, Harald Gaski, Gunvor Guttorm, Dan Jåma, Elin Anna Labba, Britta Marakatt-Labba, Hans Ragnar Mathisen and Wanda Nanibush.
