“The Kautokeino Rebellion” Media
Posted On: May 27, 2012 | Author: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Online

Nikolaj did a small movie in Norway regarding an historical event barely noticed to the outside world. Instead of me trying to explain it, I’ll just c/c/p the entry from Wiki. Nikolaj stars with two actors from the international phenomenon THE MILLENNIUM SERIES in Michael Nyqvist who played journalist Mikael Blomkvist, and Peter Andersson who played Peter Telaborian. Nikolaj is Biskop Juell, a man of the cloth. I have to say there is something rather profane about that. Don’t ask me why, there just is. To add, I’m sorry for the small size of the screencaps. Unfortunately the originating file wasn’t in HQ thereefore I wasn’t able to get the screencaps I usually provide. I could have resized but to do so would have taken away the clarity of the caps so I left them as is. I hope you understand.

Kautokeino rebellion

The Sami revolt in Guovdageaidnu, also known as the Kautokeino uprising, was a revolt in the town of Kautokeino in northern Norway in 1852 by a group of Sami who attacked representatives of the Norwegian authorities. The rebels killed the local merchant and the local government official, whipped their servants and the village priest, and burned down the merchant’s house. The rebels were later seized by other Sami, who killed two of the rebels in the process. Two of the leaders, Mons Somby and Aslak Hætta, were later executed by the Norwegian government.

Background

The incident was connected to a religious revival movement that was inspired by the preacher Lars Levi Læstadius. His teaching, which had great influence on the Sami in Norway at the time, demanded a more spiritually pure lifestyle and abstaining from alcohol. The movement turned more militant as their followers, called Læstadians, saw the Norwegian State Church as too close to the state-run alcohol industry. They formed their own congregations separate from the state church. Their meetings were, according to contemporary sources,[who?] highly charismatic and emotional and appealed to feelings. In a short period of time, a minority of these followers became more militant.[citation needed] They believed their moral authority was greater than that of the state church, and they were later accused of interrupting its services.

During this time, the Sami were economically far poorer than the Norwegian settlers in the north, counting wealth in reindeer or other livestock (rather than currency), and they were considered socially inferior to the Norwegians. The local merchant, who sold the local Sami liquor, was a target for the rebellion due to his repeated cheating and exploitation of Sami customers, many of whom were vulnerable alcoholics. Alcoholism was widespread and had been highly destructive to the Sami and their culture during this time. The Laestadians were against the sale and use of liquor. But preaching outside of the state church – both physically and spiritually – was also illegal at the time. Thus, the Sami were at odds not only with the local priest and merchant but also Norwegian law.

Aftermath

All the men arrested for participating in the revolt – except the two leaders Aslak Hætta and Mons Somby (who were beheaded in Alta) – ended up in Akershus Fortress at Oslo. The women, including Ellen Jacobsdatter Hætta, were imprisoned in Trondheim.

Many of the rebels died after a few years in captivity.

Among the survivors was Lars Hætta, who had been 18 years at the time of imprisonment. He was given the time and means in jail to make the first translation of the Bible into North Sámi.[1]

The Kautokeino rebellion was one of the few violent reactions by the Sami against the exploitation policies of the Norwegian government and was the only known confrontation between Samis and Norwegians with loss of human lives. The rebellion was not a direct response to the forced assimilation policy of Norwegianization that later became an official government policy, but the 1852 rebellion had an impact on the choices made by the new Norwegian state as this policy was implemented. Norway had yet to develop enough cultural self-esteem to assimilate the Sami into ethnic Norwegians, as Norwegians at the time were still struggling to find their own identity separate from Danes and Swedes.

However, Norwegianization greatly intensified after the dissolution of the union between Norway and Sweden in 1905. It continued until the Alta controversy in the early 1980s and was not fully eliminated until the summer of 2001.
