Sámi Generations and a Common Story 2015-2016


The Sámi Museum Siida launched a project called Sámi Generations and a Common Story in September 2015. The purpose of the project was to document and record Sámi tradition with the needs of the community as its starting-point. In addition to its main purpose, the project was also aimed at bringing generations together and passing down know-how.

The Sámi Museum applied a new method in the project, recording and documenting traditional knowledge on the basis of ideas and needs that arise in Sámi communities. This innovative and participatory project was funded by the Finnish National Board of Antiquities.
