Description


In My Ancestors are Reindeer Herders and I am Melting in Extinction, Ron Riekki presents a collection of non-fiction, short stories, and poetry about the Karelian- and Saami-American experience.

In true nomadic fashion, his writing takes the reader to Kuusamo, Utah, Berkeley, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Lake Mohave, Yosemite, Karelia, and a hazmat facility where all the animals on site have been forgotten.

A mix of Anselm Hollo, Gregory Orr, Eric Torgersen, and Nils-Aslak Valkeap , Riekki's writing forces the Saami-American voice to be heard, a voice that some might not even realize exists. It does. Furiously.
