    Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Sollid, Hilde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Den samiske nasjonaldagen 6. februar blei innstifta i 1992 til minne om det første samiske landsmøtet eller folkemøtet i Trondheim i 1917. I dag er dagen flere steder i landet blitt en viktig dag for å lage en markering og ha en anledning til å ta opp et samisk innhold i undervisninga. Vi går i denne artikkelen inn på den samiske nasjonaldagen som ritual på skolen. Teoretisk sett ser vi til ...

    Broderstad, Else Grete; Hausner, Vera Helene; Josefsen, Eva; Søreng, Siri Ulfsdatter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-22)
    Claims for indigenous rights to land and resources are influencing land use policies worldwide. The public’s support for such land tenure arrangements has rarely been investigated. We present a unique case from the Norwegian Arctic, where land claims made by the indigenous Sami people have resulted in the transfer of land tenure and resource management from the government to the residents of Finnmark ...

    The article addresses the issue of indigenous agency and its influence on the contestation of indigenous rights norms in an extractive context from the perspective of organizations representing people, whose recognition as ‘indigenous’ is withheld by the Russian authorities. The article argues that a governance perspective and approach to recognition from ‘below’ provides a useful lens for comprehensively ...

  • "Urfolk" og "mangfold" i skolens læreplaner 

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Andreassen, Bengt-Ove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-17)
    Since 1974, the curriculum for the Norwegian school has had a overarching part that puts the school and its content into a bigger social and political context. As such, this part of the curriculum is a highly political and ideological text that expresses the state's purpose and interest related to the school. This article looks into how indigenous people, minorities and diversity is represented in ...
  • This Word is (Not?) Very Exciting: Considering Intersectionality in Indigenous Studies 

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-02)
    Gender and intersectional approaches can provide important insights and reflections for indigenous studies. Issues related to indigenous people and communities are broad and complex. Doing research within indigenous studies has to consist of more than simply discussing indigenous identity. I argue that intersectional approaches of varying kinds provide an opportunity to understand several aspects ...

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Sollid, Hilde; Johansen, Åse Mette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Skal du bli lærer i Norge, må du kunne ivareta rettighetene til samiske barn og ungdommer, men også opplæring om samiske forhold for alle elever. Dette slår de nasjonale forskriftene om rammeplan for lærerutdanningene fast. Hva betyr egentlig dette for lærerutdanningene? I denne artikkelen utforsker vi dette spørsmålet ved å se rammeplanens føringer i sammenheng med samiske temaers plass i ...

    Jåstad, Hilde Leikny (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)

The first part of this article gives a brief description of the source material, and in order to evaluate the strength of the ethnicity variable given in the ...

    Evjen, Bjørg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
    The Sami husbandry has traditionally incorporated reindeer, which did not belong to the nomadic household. According to the national census from 1875, this system was found in many parts of Norway. Among the counties, Nordland stood out having the highest number of households owing custodial reindeer. Most of the households were non-Sami, and most of them ...
