KULTA – Special features of the Forest Sami culture

MDI studied specific cultural features of the so-called Forest Sami people. The study focused on the cultural features that can be recognised today and that the people itself recognizes as important. The study aimed at diversifying the discussion on Forest Sami culture and at proposing measures that promote and support the culture. The work included data collection (including field research and in-depth interviews in Lapland) and local workshops. The research drew a lot of interest as it was the first project focusing on the sensitive issue of Forest Sami identity. The final report of the project, in Finnish, can be found at https://tietokayttoon.fi/julkaisut/raportti?pubid=URN:ISBN:978-952-287-763-5
