We are a community of indigenous sami people located in the middle of Jokkmokk municipality in the north of Sweden. In the past we were known under the name Jåkkåkaska but we chose to reclaim our sami spelling which is Jåhkågaska tjiellde and means "the sami community between the rivers". The community is governed like an economic association, and we also have a territorial area which our members are using as grazing grounds for our reindeer. The land of the sami community is currently severly exploited in many different ways such as by logging, hydro plants, various infrastructures and so forth.
These are different ways of spelling the name of an area in the middle of our grazing lands, situated beween the two villages Randijaur and Björkholmen in Jokkmokk municipality. Kallak is also the name of the concession permit to mine iron ore that the swedish government recently gave to the company Jokkmokk Iron Mines.
You easily donate any amount you'd like below through either PayPal, Credit/Debit card payment or via an international bank transfer. All donations will be used for our sami communitys fight to prevent the exploitations on our lands. We need to pay lawyers, other persons with nessecary expertise, lodging and travel costs, other costs for opinion formation, various arrangements and meetings etc. during our fight against the exploitations.
If you feel that you can't support us with an economic donation, there is still a way in which you can help us! Please give the URL to our webpage www.gallok.se/en-gb to everyone you know, and share it through social media.
We become strong together!
