The themes in the photo exhibition by Sámi teacher educator and psychologist Tomi Guttorm are based on Sámi pedagogy and psychological self-determination theory. According to the self-determination theory, the holistic well-being of people is based on three factors, namely, autonomy, competence, and social interaction.

Guttorm states that one of the key challenges in Sámi society’s well-being is, that the autonomy required by national laws and international agreements is not currently fulfilled in Finland or other Nordic countries. Through his photos, Guttorm discuss how Sámis can cope under the pressure of the majority culture and maintain and develop their own languages and cultures. As a solution to these challenges Guttorm suggest that the key protective factors are the ability to maintain and strengthen the Sámi identity and connection with nature, as well as protecting the traditional livelihoods and the rights of indigenous people.

The exhibition “We’ll cope” is produced by the Sámi Museum Siida  and it is open in Siida from May to the beginning of October.
