“To channelize my feelings about the urgent need of knowledge about my people – the Sámi people – which I meet wherever music takes me around the world I founded Sofia Jannok Foundation where I can work on this matter, without always having to bring it up on the music stage. I wanted to not only talk about resistance, decolonizing or rights to exist, but also do something proactive to support all these elements. My foundation is to support indigenous peoples, both within Sápmi – the area of my people – but also around the world. In times of climate changes, structural oppression and urbanized life style this is something I care extra about.”
