Buoris! muv namma l Svenn-Egil, jali Duolljá Sikká Johánná Lise bárnne. Gå iejvviv ietjam fuolgev Svieriga bielen, vierttiv buorástahttet riektaláhkáj váj árvvedi gen máttos lav. Mån lav guovtegielak. Válla ienemusát mån dárustav. Hello! my name is Svenn-Egil, or Tuolljá Siggá´s Johanna´s Lise´s son. When I meet relatives in Sweden that I don’t really know, I have to explain which branch of the family I belong to. I’m bilingual, but I speak mostly Norwegian. Mån lav riegádum ja bajássjaddam Måsken, jali Davve-Måsken. Unna ráhtedis sajásj Helmåvvån. Guokti gålmmi bæjvváj máhtá jåhtelisvanntsajn mannat vuonav sisi Måsskoj. I’m born and raised in Musken, or outer-Musken. A small community in Hellemofjord without roads. Two or three time’s per day, you can travel with an express boat to Musken. Mijá vehka; æddnám ja muv gålmmå oappá (Lill-Tove, Solvår ja Sølvi), vielljam (Tronna) ja mån, jådijma Måskes Ájláddáj gietjavlågenannieljen. Ájluovtan, dan sæmmi tjavtja álggiv skåvllåj vuostasj klássaj. Unna oappásj, Vibeke, riegádij niellja jage manngela. My family which included my mother, my tree sisters (Lill-Tove, Solvår and Sølvi), my brother (Trond) and I moved to Hellandsberg from Musken in 1974. That same autumn I started in first class at Drag school. My younger sister, Vibeke, was born four years later. Skåvllåmáná ehtjin oattjo luobev sámástit skåvlån. Navti lij máj skåvllåpolitihkka dalloj. Æjgáda hiejttin sámástit mánájdisá. Dalloj Ij lim nav buorre sábmen liehket. Valla mån gåjt lav ihkevin ávon gå áhkko ja æddnám ehtjin balá munji sámástit juska lijma láttij siegen. At that time the Sami language was forbidden in school. That was the way school politics was at that time. Parents stopped speaking Sami to their children. It wasn’t so good to be Sami. But I feel lucky that my grandmother and my mother didn’t stop speaking Sami with me, even though we where in a Norwegian speaking area. Nuorran Måsken, gulliv ietjam gielav juohkka biejve - máná, nuora ja vuorasap ulmutja sámastin dalloj . Udni l dal ietjá ájgge – giella l gullunagá gáhtomin, ja giella ij rat dasti gullu nuoraj gaskan. When I was growing up in Musken, everybody spoke Sami - children and adults. Today it’s a different time - it seems like the Lule Sami language is disappearing. You can’t hear the language so often any more. Valla giela dille l vuojnnet rievddamin. Skåvlåjn dálla oattjo oahppet ietjat gielav, ja hájn vil oattjo sámástit åhpadiddjijn. Valla viláp la sámegiella fáhka majt máhtá válljit. Oajválattja vuojnnet vuosedi åvdåsvásstádusáv. Ájluovta skåvllå ja Árran same guovdásj li ájnna institusjåvnå ma fálli julevsámegielav mánájda Vuonan. Jus la ilá maŋŋget bierggit gielav ájgge dav vuoset. But the language’s situation seems to be changing (I’m glad). In some schools you can learn your own language. You can even speak Saami with some teachers. But Saami is still an elective subject. The government has finally taken some responsibility. Drag school and Árran - Lule Sami Center are the only two institutions which offer Lule Sami language instruction to children in Norway. If it’s too late to save the language, then time will tell? Annotation of representative texts from Lule Sami Documenting Lule Sami | About Lule Sami | Dorothee Beermann | Kristin Lindbach
