Mihku Ilmára Jenni Unni Áile, Jenni Laiti (1981) is a Sámi Artist, a Duojár (Master of Traditional Sámi Crafts), an Indigenous Rights Activist and a Climate Justice Advocate. They belong to the Mihkku family of craft masters in duodji, the traditional Sámi craft. Laiti, like their family, is a link in the thousand-year chain of the craft mastery of Sámi duodji and the Arctic Indigenous survival.

Love for their land, river and people, justice for all creation, indigenous world-making and radical ancestral futurity carry them on their path. Laiti mainly collaborates with others and acknowledges that humans are nothing without their communities. Laiti has been working with the local Sámi communities, ancestral and future generations and their lands on Sámi self-determination and local governance, advocating climate justice and crafting other worlds since they were 16 years old. Laiti envisions their people living as free people one day on their ancestral lands.
