Duodji

Welcome to the Duodji Page!

Duodji, also known as handicraft, is the traditional craft of the Sami people, who are located in a region called Sapmi, stretching from central Norway and Sweden northward through northern Finland and the Kola Peninsula of northwestern Russia. Duodji consisted of leatherwork, textiles, weaving, scrimshaw, metalwork, such as jewelry and knives, drum making, and woodwork, such as carved utensils, drums, and kuksa.

While these crafts are alive and well in northern Europe, they are disappearing in North America as new generations lose the traditions of their ancestors. I am trying to re-learn the lost skills to teach future generations and to keep tradition alive.

Woodwork

These wood burnings depict scenes and stories inspired by Sami mythology and life in the tundra. By clicking on the pictures you can enlarge them and read the story in the caption that goes along with them.

T-Shirts

These T-shirts are based on the Sami pictograph wood burning. They are silk screen printed by Bohemia Printing in L’Anse Michigan. By clicking on the pictures you can enlarge them and read the story in the caption that goes along with them. Shirts are currently available in two colors and three sizes. Green or black, and medium, large, and extra large.

Due to popular demand I will try to get some printed in size small, and perhaps in different colors.

They are $20 each local pick up, and $25 with shipping.

Jewelry

Wear a piece of the north with you wherever you go with natural antler and wood jewelry. The white tail deer antler and burl wood has been obtained from the northern Great Lakes region and is cut and polished by hand. Antler pieces are decorated with intricate pyrography inspired by the northwoods of the Great Lakes, Sami mythology, life in Sapmi, and the Kalevala. Wire wrapping and cordage is done by my neighbor, Great Lakes Gems.

Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in all those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely be impressed.

  6. 3 Facts you need to know about JEWS: FIRST FACT: The Holocaust never happened. Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page ebook. It proves the Holocaust is a hoax. SECOND FACT: 9-11 was done by Israel’s Mossad. Google “Masters of Deception PDF” and read that 240 page ebook. It proves that Mossad and top Jews in America committed the 9-11 terrorist attacks. THIRD FACT: Jews are the ones behind pushing for mass immigration from 3rd world countries into the West, Jews created feminism, Jews created communism, Jews control Hollywood, Jews control the banking system, Jews started all the wars as Jews are in top government positions that push for wars, Jews own the media (85 of the media in America is owned by jews). In short, jews are responsible for 90 of everything evil in this world. The Holocaust never happened but maybe it should? The Holocaust is not such a bad idea, actually.

  11. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com

  14. The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!

  15. Appreciating the persistence you invested in this blog and comprehensive info you provide. It is nice to find a blogging site now and then which is just not the similar outdated rehashed material. Amazing read! We have bookmarked your site and I am including the RSS feeds to my facetime free page.

  16. The holocaust never happened. 6 million jews did NOT die!!! Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page free eBook. It’s time to wake up, people. Stop believing the lies the jewish media and Jew hollywood is constantly pumping out.

  17. We need to legalize prostitution immediately. The main reason is so that men can have an easy sexual outlet and thus instead of wasting massive amounts of their mental energy on trying to get sex from women, men can simply PAY MONEY FOR SEX and then spend the rest of their time doing whatever they want to do. Of course women don’t want to legalize prostitution. If men could get sex easily and cheaply, most men would no longer bother dating or marrying women and thus women would no longer be able to act as financial parasites off of men. Legalizing prostitution is the GREATEST thing we could do to sexually liberate MEN! Or, here’s an even cooler idea. American men could simply travel to Tijuana, Asia, Germany, Amsterdam, Thailand, etc, where prostitution is already legal. Most western women, i.e. WHITE women are useless shit anyway so even if prostitution was legalized in America, you would just see a bunch of fat ass white bitches becoming prostitutes. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! Even a fucking prostitute from a 3rd world country is a better deal than normal American women. That’s how fucking useless most white western women are. Anyway aside from that, I wrote an essay called “Are Prostitutes Better than Normal Women?” here: http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30801

  20. Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.” by Sir Arthur Eddington.

  21. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

  32. Гид по Тайланду – все о Тайланде, отдыхе, туризме

    Тайланд – красивая страна, привлекающая туристов своей живописной природой. В западной части возвышается о. Пхукет, куда прибывает основная часть туристов. Главное достоинство данного курорта – это Андаманское море, с прозрачной водой, чистая, насыщенного бирюзового оттенка.
    Наиболее крутые пляжи -это Патонг и Камала. Для детского отдыха больше будет побережье Камала, потому, что он наименее громкий, рядом с ним тихо и спокойно. А пляж Патонг напротив не такой тихий, на нём работают магазинчики, бары и клубы, но зато добраться сюда легко и просто. Важно отметить, что на побережье нет навязчивых торговцев, мусора, гальки и камней, что доставляет наибольшее удовольствие.
    Достопримечательностей на Пхукете не много, лишь несколько музеев и храмовых комплексов. Из развлечений нужно отметить подводное плаванье с аквалангом, которое позволяет рассмотреть разнообразие животного мира. Также остров знаменит своими экскурсиями: заповедники Као Лак и Као Сок, сафари, прогулка на слоне, всё это не оставит скучающим ни одного отдыхающего. Наилучшее время для отдыха – октябрь – апрель, в этот период дождей почти нет и температура более благоприятная.

    Пляжный отдых в Паттайе

    Курорт Паттайя по значимости не уступает Пхукету, но в корне отличается от него. Вода в море на всех пляжах Паттайи очень грязная с мутной зеленоватой грязью, однако рядом есть несколько не больших островков, где вода безупречно чистая. Добраться сюда можно на морском паромчике, путь займет времени около часа в одну сторону. Но не смотря на все все пляжи в самой Паттайе очень многолюдны, сложно будет найти пустой лежак, в море практически никто не купается, все туристы только загорают.
    В противоположность Пхукету, Паттайя напртив насыщена достопримечательностями. Наиболее общеизвестные и посещаемые – храм Истины и статуя Большого Будды. Кроме буддийских красот, можно обратить внимание на крокодиловую и слоновью фермы. А самое важное, чем прославилась Паттайя это ночные тусовки. Удивительная улица Wolking Street настоящая визитная карточка курорта. В каждом доме тут клубы, рестораны, представления под открытым небом, шоу ледибоев и пр.
    Шопоголикам здесь понравится больше, чем на Пхукете, благодаря тому, что здесь очень много шоппинг центров. Что касается еды, в особенности фруктов, в Паттайе цены заметно ниже, а по ассортименту ничем не отличаются.

    Отдых в Тайланде впечатляет туристов на каждом курорте, это та страна, которую стоит обязательно посетить.

    Тайланд – красивая страна, привлекающая туристов своей красивой природой. У западного побережья возвышается остров Пхукет, куда прибывает основная часть туристов. Основное достоинство данного курорта – это Андаманское море, вода в нём прозрачная, теплая, насыщенного голубого оттенка.
    Самые крутые пляжи – Патонг и Камала. Для детского отдыха больше будет побережье Камала, потому, что он менее громкий, рядом с ним нет шумной инфраструктуры. А пляж Патонг не такой тихий, вдоль побережья расположены магазины, дискотеки и ночные клубы, но зато добраться сюда легко и просто. Хочется заметить, что на курорте нет навязчивых продавцов, мусора, камней, что доставляет наибольшее удовольствие.
    Достопримечательностей на острове Пхукет маловато, всего несколько старинных храмов. Из развлечений можно выделить дайвинг с аквалангом, которое позволяет разглядеть разнообразие подвожного мира. Еще Пхукет знаменит экскурсионными турами: заповедники Као-Сок и Као-Лак, сафари, прогулка на слонах, всё это не оставит скучающим ни одного отдыхающего. Наилучшее время для путешествия – с октября по апрель, в в эти месяцы наиболее солнечно и температура более комфортная.

Добраться до острова можно на пароме, путь займет времени примерно час в одну сторону. Но не смотря на все все гродские пляжи в самой Паттайе очень многолюдны, тяжело будет найти пустой лежак, в самом море почти никто не купается, все туристы только загорают.
