Aage Solbakk
What we believe in

Perhaps the title of this book ought to have been "What we used to believe in", thus stating how our pre-Christian religion no longer exists. Though that would not be entirely correct. We still hear and read about the Sámi noaidi - the Saami shamans today. Some have even chosen to come forward to tell the stories about their special abilities. In this book we will not meet the present-day noaidi, but rather learn what they represented before Christianity made its way into Sápmi (Sámiland).
