Abstract

More than Meets the Eye The Indigeneity of Harald Gaski University of Tromsø ohan Turi was more than a writer. The main purpose of this article is to offer a glimpse of Turi's artistic production alongside his prose. In addition to the images originally published in Muitalus sámiid birra, Turi produced a number of other pictures as well. None of these had ever been published until the anniversary edition of Turi's work in 2010 although it appears that Emilie Demant Hatt may have organized an exhibition of Turi's artwork at some point.1 Turi's first pictures were intended as fairly straightforward clarifications of points covered in his text, but gradually, he seems to have grown more expressionistic in his handling of visual genres. His artwork has received little critical attention to date, but it is rather obvious that Turi was influenced by trends in modern art. These he would have come in contact with during his visits to the home of Hjalmar Lundbohm (discussed in Kristin Kuutma's article within this collection), Turi's good friend and an avid collector of art. It is also likely that Emilie Demant, an active artist herself, would have brought Turi to the Danish National
