Int’l Conference on Sami Self-Determination

Last week there was an International Conference on Sami Self-Determination in Alta, Norway. You can check the program and view the webcast of the conference in the links below. I presented at the very end of the conference, but hey, it was the Sami National Day! (And the title of my talk was *not* “Female Perspective to Sami Self-Determination” as I don’t think such a thing exists. The title of my talk was “The Multiple Struggles for Self-Determination in the Age of Globalization — An Indigenous Feminist Analysis.” My talk is in English although I start off in Sami.) It was an informative conference with good discussion – but only a beginning on the long road toward rebuilding Sami self-determination.
