Genuine and fake gáktis on display next to each other in Sajos

A small exhibition has been opened at Sajos in Inari to let people see the differences between a real gákti and a fake lookalike. 

The Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos in Inari, Finland has a genuine gákti from Enontekiö and a gákti-like piece of clothing on display next to each other. This small exhibition was organized by Sámi Duodji and the Sámi Parliament of Finland.

“The idea behind the exhibition was to show in a concrete way the differences between a real gákti and a fake lookalike,” said Petra Magga-Vars, the president of the Sámi Duodji Association.

“We have put up the exhibition on display so that they can be there until the end of the summer, until the end of August. Also for the reason that right now there are tourists and other visitors around, so they can get to see what a real gákti looks like and what a fake ‘gákti’ looks like.”

“On of the goals of the Sámi Duodji Association is to publish and disseminate real information about Sámi craftwork. No one needs to quarrel about if some piece of clothing is a genuine gákti, if it’s right or if it’s wrong. They can go look for themselves and see what’s what,” said Magga-Vars.

The exhibition will be on display until the end of August.

One more Sámi post for this week. My lovely friend Kim was awesome as usual and translated this article about the fake gáktis from Northern Sámi to English. 

I put all the fake ones one the left and the real ones on the right, but I don’t know if Tumblr will let them stay on their places. More pics behind the link. The fake one has lots of colours, but it’s clearly not handicraft or as detailed as the real one. You can’t produce the Sámi culture in factories.

I was watching Just Married with this guy once and at that bit on the wedding night when Ashton Kutcher lays his head on Brittany Murphy’s chest to sleep he was like ‘isn’t that the wrong way round? girls are supposed to sleep on the guy’s chest’ and that’s why straight people are weird.

A couple I know were having trouble holding hands because the boy was insisting that his hand was supposed to go in front

Feminism: Reclaim the word.

Feminist is not a reductive term, and don’t let the media tell you that it’s a negative thing to be. Don’t let them convince you that you have to be a lesbian-man hating-aggressive stereotype to fit this label. Don’t let society tell you that all feminists have a vagina. Embrace the term of a feminist, take it back and reclaim it for its sole purpose of equality of the sexes.

I <3 het feminism!

Feminism: make sure your not “aggressive” or a lesbian.
