7. (2013 September) Video: Our Rights To Earth And Freedom, TEDxGateway

As a child of the indigenous Sami people, Sofia has been strongly influenced by the powerful landscapes that surround her and the deep connection that her ancestors
have fostered through their traditional livelihoods which bond them to their land.

As a singer/songwriter, she has toured around the world performing her unique blend of jazz and pop, fused with the Sami musical tradition of Yoik .

Concerned over the destructive impact of industry on the Northern lands Sofia is a founding member of the Arvas Foundation- a group that seeks to remind people that we only borrow earth for a short time and our task is to preserve land and water for future generations.
