The project will identify Sami traditional knowledge related to land use so that it can be better taken into account when making decisions about biodiversity and sustainable development, as well as the rights of the Sami people. The project will focus on the traditional knowledge among the reindeer-herding Sami in the Käsivarsi area in cooperation with local Akwé: Ko working group. The project is funded by the Nessling Foundation.
Collecting traditional knowledge, using it and handling the materials - a video reportage from the fieldwork.
