BÁIKI: The International Sámi Journal Báiki is a major English-language source of information about Sámi arts, literature, history, spirituality, and environmental concerns. It also covers news of North American Sámi community events.
"Báiki" [bah-h'kee] is the nomadic reindeer-herding society's word for cultural identity and survival, "the home that lives in the heart." The beautifully illustrated 28-page biannual publication began in 1991 and is now in its 37th issue.
Contributers include Sámi, Native American and other journalists, storytellers, historians, poets, artists and photographers. Báiki is produced by volunteers and supported by the subscriptions and sponsorships of its loyal readership.
