As a child of the indigenous Sami people, Sofia has been strongly influenced by the powerful landscapes that surround her and the deep connection that her ancestorshave fostered through their traditional livelihoods which bond them to their land. As a singer/songwriter, she has toured around the world performing her unique blend of jazz and pop, fused with the Sami musical tradition of Yoik . Concerned over the destructive impact of industry on the Northern landsSofia is a founding member of the Arvas Foundation- a group that seeks toremind people that we only borrow earth for a short time and our task is to preserve land and water for future generations.---In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)http://www.tedxgateway.comhttp://www.ted.com
