Kiss from the border
To support Sámi fishing rights Alva Association sells Creating Justice / Hábmemin vuoiggalašvuođa t-shirts and posters according to orders. T-shirt and poster has a picture of a map of Deatnu river valley system surrounded by poem North Sámi. Picture is part of environmental community art project Rájácummá - Kiss from the Border by artists Niillas Holmberg, Jenni Laiti and Outi Pieski. It tells about the basis of self-government by local Sámi people: equal status for nature and people based on reciprocity and respect.
In the summer of 2018, while being interviewed regarding this matter, the questions "what do you think your children will learn about this case?” was asked of Kati, one of the fishers. She poignantly answered "I want to teach them that you won´t (always) get justice in this world, you have to be part in creating it". It is having a part in creating justice that is the message of the anglers’ actions and this campaign.
