UIT seminar:Reindeer husbandry in Alaska

Seminar

From the late 1800s until about 1940, Sami and Kven left Norway to establish reindeer husbandry in Alaska. They were hired to introduce reindeer herding because of the reduction and near-crashes in other resources. These experiences are the focus for UiT the Arctic University of Norway’s festival seminar. Native Alaskans are the Northern People of the Year at Riddu Riđđu, and the seminar will therefore provide a unique arena for exchanging stories and experiences in addition to illuminating the objectives for introducing reindeer husbandry to Alaska. Who were the Samis that left for Alaska? What did they experience there? And what is the relationship between Alaska Natives and this industry today?

Participants:

Anne Husebekk, Marit Anne Hauan, Ellen Marie Jensen, Klemet Isaksen Hætta. 

Moderator: Torjer A. Olsen
