Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen
Star Wars winner and environmental activist
Ella Marie oversees planned mining operations at the Repparfjord in Finnmark.
“We have been saying for ten years that the Repparfjord will be Alta's new land. It's a very special experience to go on fildwork and immerse yourself in the universe of the 1970s and 1980s, while at the same time fighting the battle in 2021." Like all Sámi, she brings environmental issues through her soul. The Alta campaign marked an important turning point in the history of the Norwegian Sámi. "The movement sowed the seeds that made us create a Sami parliament in Norway. When I was young, I realized how much the Alta's campaign meant. When I myself became an active participant in the environmental movement, the activists from Alta became an even greater role model for me.
