Current research project engage with indigenous/Sámi ways of knowing; in particular as expressed through land- and seascape as well as in artistic practices and festivals. The world that emerge from indigenous peoples’ experiences and practices can see the examples of the examples of the possibilities of other worlds that we need to learn from in order to address environmental issues. Ongoing publication effort engage with locally embedded practice of reconciliation, memories and landscape.

The article argues that in everyday life, in ethnically mixed communities in the Arctic region, the concept of Saaminess is dynamic and situated. Social practices that sustain impure identity categories are in existence. People insist on ambiguity as a matter of resistance against Norwegian society as well as against the logic of nationalism, after...
Article
The silent language of gifts in Arctic communities This article addresses the performativity of the gift in an ethnically mixed coastal community, the population being predominantly indigenous Saami and Norwegian. Taking inspiration from Mauss and later Ricœur, my argument is that giving is highly important in these remote areas and can be seen as...

In this article we develop some arguments from a research project where the researchers were also participants in the making of a multiplayer online game. The "Siida" project emerged as a challenge to the static and monolithic vision of Indigenous Saami culture and history. It seeks to create an arena for learning founded on new approaches to resea...

The use of a Sami traditional costume (gakti), produced in China in light green, at an internal event by the employees of the national grocery retail chain KIWI1 opened an emotional public debate in Sápmi/Norway. Some saw the use of the Sami traditional costume as disrespectful, while others saw it as harmless fun. While some reacted physically, wa...

Hva skjer når kunst skaper friksjon ved å utfordre etablerte virkelighetsoppfatning...

Article

Truly transdisciplinary approaches are needed to tackle the complex problems that the Arctic is facing at the moment. Collaboration between Indigenous rights holders and researchers through co-creative research approaches can result in high-quality research outcomes, but crucially also address colonial legacies and power imbalances, enhance mutual...
Article
In this article, we engage with environmental conflicts on indigenous land through a focus on an attempt to gain social licence to reopen and operate the Biedjovággi mine in Guovdageainnu/Kautokeino in Sápmi, Norway. We argue that mining prospects bring forth ontological conflicts concerning land use, as well as ways to know the landscape and the e...

In this article, I read Marianne Gullestad's book «Everyday life Philosophers, modernity, morality, and autobiography in Norway with special emphasis on the autobiography of Einar; a Sámi from one of the coastal communities of Sápmi. In order to elaborate on memories as part of a landscape, I will bring Gullestad's analysis in dialogue with the art...

In this article we travel through theorizing towards what we think Indigenous knowledge does, and how it works and gets presented, by using the concept of the pluriverse. As three researchers concerned with Indigenous studies, we ask how we create and share stories that bring us together in communities and become possible to be shared in the inter-...

Through a critical reading of previous research, this article explores local and indigenous cultures in the context of Nordic Arctic tourism and how its consequences have been researched in Nordic tourism research. We show that experiences with, practices of and controversies over the representation and presence (or absence) of local and indigenous...

Reconciliation has gained political interest in Norway, where a commission was established in 2018 to investigate the injustices committed in the past towards the Sámi and Kven. In this article, we argue that reconciliation can also be found in the small stories and events enacted in everyday life. Our analyses are based on a collaboration with a S...

Sammendrag I denne artikkelen gjør jeg en nylesing av Marianne Gullestads bok Hverdagsfilosofer. Verdier, selvforståelse og samfunnssyn i det moderne Norge, med særlig vekt på hennes fortolkning av sjøsamiske Einars selvbiografi – og måter Einar reflekterer rundt minner og felles hukommelse gjennom landskap. For å kunne utdype argumentasjon om minn...

This article addresses an ongoing controversy in Noway around designing and naming Sámi (indigenous) objects. The authors argue that controversies in many academic debates have been framed in essentializing ways that stress identity politics and believe this framing to be analytically and politically unfruitful. There are ways of thinking about or...

Orientalism or cultural encounters? Tourism assemblages cultures, capital, and identities. What challenges lie in the indigenous tourism project? What is the significance to consider when using culture as a basis for business development? What basic paradoxes and challenges will be met when one wants to achieve growth in Sami tourism and the creat...

The art–science project Dark Ecology (DE) can be considered as multiple expeditions and new travel practices with the aim to investigate polluted tundras, natural and manmade mountains, lakes and rivers, military and mining zones, and towns and settlements in the border area of Northern Norway and Russia above the Arctic Circle. DE initiated theore...

In this article, we describe teaching through experimental writing workshops designed to introduce students to a way of writing that expresses Indigenous methodologies in recognizing multiple epistemic authorities. We propose an alternative configuration of the “author in the text” who comes to life in analytic texts generated with and through Indi...

Cultural industries are seen as a mean to achieve future economic growth and strengthening the attractiveness of cities and regions.

This chapter explores dreaming and gift giving to see their connection to Sámi epistemic practice and knowledge traditions. In the Coastal Sámi communities where I have been doing fieldwork, dreams are part of the local practices. In addition, the Sámi language is rarely used in everyday life. The particular colonial history in many northern commun...

Being concerned with responsible whale tourism, we have argued that we need to understand how whales are enacted in multiple ways. To do so, we describe a series of knowledge practices or ontologies through which different whales are enacted and the relations between these. We argue that there are multiple versions of the whale in northern seascape...

Kultur som naering-møter som sammenstøter? Kulturnaeringen blir regnet som en vekstnaering som både skal generere økonomiske vekst og løse sentrale samfunnsmessige utfordringer. I denne artikkelen ser vi kritisk på hvordan offentlige institusjoner søker å organisere det mulige verdiskapningspotensialet som koblingen mellom kultur og naering har. I...

The article argues that the concept of saaminess is dynamic and situated in everyday life in ethnically mixed communities in the Arctic region.
