JUOIGAN is the untold story of one of the oldest music cultures in Europe. The story also sheds light on the dark streak of oppression and denunciation of yoik, contrasting it with the joy, humor and affection about nature, animals and persons expressed through the yoik. This film aims to show how Sámi people found their own musical path.
