These YouTube videos are all spoken by my father, in the Finnish language. I have added translations into several other languages such as English, French, Spanish and many others – these are as CC – Closed Captions. You may have to click on the CC – Closed Captions in the YouTube settings shown at the bottom of the screen for this to appear.

Episode Summary:

In this first episode, my father is born in 1906 in the Kola Peninsula. His mother was a North Sámi, born in Vadso Norway. His father dies on the same night that he is born. His mother returns to Petsamo (now Pechenga). In 1908 Skolt Sámi relocate to live in Petsamo.
My father describes his early days as a young child living through the long, harsh, cold winters of the north, surviving by eating berries preserved during the summer months, and building traps using birch wood to catch rabbits and grouse.
