In the early 20th century, the Danish artist Emilie Demant Hatt and Johan Turi, a Swedish Sami hunter and would-be writer and artist, formed an unlikely bond. She edited and translated his classic work, An Account of the Sami, which included his writings and original drawings. He introduced her to the world of nomadic reindeer herders.
Back in Denmark, Demant Hatt wrote her own narrative, With the Lapps in the High Mountains.

Author Barbara Sjoholm has been studying the lives of Demant Hatt and Turi for many years and will be giving a talk and slide show presentation about their mutual influence and how Sápmi is reflected in their writings and artwork.
