|The Kalinga Chong-Ak Rice food community in the Philippines is a group of more than 720 rice farmers who plant Chong-ak, a traditional native rice variety intimately connected to the Indigenous Taguibong people of Kalinga and their cultural practices. Tribe leader Lam-en Gonnay was present in Jokkmokk to talk about this group of rice farmers and share their knowledge and experiences|
The joik is a song-chant and the traditional folk music style of the Sámi people. It is thought to be one of the oldest still-existing music traditions in Europe. A joik can have very minimal or no lyrics, and often reflects a person or a place. Numerous Sami delegates joiked for the crowd during the performance evenings of the event, describing it as being "more of a feeling than a song."
|The local Sámi youth choir was created to raise money to support work with young Sámi people contemplating suicide, and was the closing act on the delegates final evening.|
