Pathfinder, directed by Nils Gaup and starring Mikkel Gaup and Sara Marit Gaup and featuring Nils-Aslak Valkeapää, was the first movie to be made in the North Sami language. Made in 1987, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1988. The story is based on a centuries old Sami tale of good winning over evil against over- whelming odds. This beautiful film has served as an introduction to traditional Sami ways, landscape, and dress for many Sami-Americans
