Abstract [en]

This article proposes that the Swedish writer Björn-Erik Höijer presents an exotified image of Laestadianism in his 1954 play Isak Juntti hade många söner (Isak Juntti had many sons). In her first book Nådevalpar: Berättelser om nomader och nybyggare i norr (1971) the Sámi writer Sara Ranta-Rönnlund challenges Höijer’s depiction which she claims is based on gossip and rumours, rather than a realistic representation of the preacher Victor Apelqvist, whom Isak Juntti is modelled after. The criticism of Höijer’s play is taken to a new level in a Tornedalian Finnish literary history from 2007. In this alternative, anticolonial literary history Bengt Pohjanen and Kirsti Johansson use Höijer’s play as an example of domestic colonialism which has Othered the Tornedalian minority in northern Sweden.
