UiT-seminar: a Sámi teacher crisis?

Seminar

Sámi languages ​​are on UNESCO's endangered list. This applies to Lule Sámi, South Sámi and Northern Sámi. One of the many consequences of the Norwegianisation was that the number of Sámi language users - and potential Sámi language users - dropped drastically. At the same time, new policies and wider recognition have led to a greater need for teachers. Schools, kindergartens, colleges and universities all lack Sámi teachers. A significant challenge is therefore to find, recruit and educate teachers. At this year's UiT seminar, we ask what we can do to strengthen the use of the Sámi language.

The seminar will be in Norwegian.

Moderator: Torjer Olsen, Center for Sámi Studies, UIT.
