Hear Chris Pesklo speaking about his Sami heritage. His family is of Sami descent from the areas of Tromsø and Nordland counties of Norway, and of Jämptland in Sweden, coming to the United States in 1930. In 1995, he was one of the founders of the Sami Slida of North America and has been educating others about the Sami for many years.

Chris was a social studies teacher and a member of the Norwegian-American Bygdelagenes Fellesraad. He is the Lappmark Lag Genealogist. He opened a business called Northern Lavvu making Sami tents. In 2013 he opened a Lavvu Coffee House near the University of MN, where you could have a traditional Sami coffee inside a Lavvu tent. In 2017 Chris took up beekeeping as a hobby.

"Epic in scope, insightful, imaginative, venturesome, and provocative — if this groundbreaking book about the Norse in America before Colombus does not cause a paradigm shift in your thinking, you need to check your pulse." — Herbert R. Cederberg, PH.D., Emeritus Professor of History, University of Wisconsin.
