Lávvosáhka: From crafts to fashion - what's what?

Seminar
Northern people of the year

For generations, Indigenous peoples around the world have used clothing as a way of expressing our identity, telling stories and maintaining traditions. It is more than just clothes – they are carriers of history, culture and often have a personal touch. In modern times, many Indigenous peoples have begun to incorporate traditional elements into modern fashion, building a bridge between the past and the present. When someone has challenged established norms within traditional crafts, they have often faced criticism within their own Indigenous communities.   

In this conversation, you are invited to gain a deeper understanding of how clothes not only represent cultural heritage, but also function as powerful symbols of identity and resistance in today's society. What exactly are the boundaries for what is allowed and what is not? 

Introduction by duojár Anna-Stina Svakko and artist Ida Helene Benonisen about the process to creating the first ever Queer gákti (regalia).  

Language: English.  

 

What is Lávvosáhka?
Last year Riddu Riđđu launched a new concept, as a supplement to the seminar program: a conversation series called Lávvosáhka. These conversations will take place in the Bálddalávvus, and their purpose is to move away from Western models of discussion, and return to informal conversation.
