The Sami Identity: A Souvenir or Something Living?
1998 (English)In: Language and Education, ISSN 0950-0782, E-ISSN 1747-7581, Vol. 12, no 2, 119-136 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the notion of identity in relation to the options of cultural affiliation available to minority group members. In particular, the paper addresses commentary made in relation to the implementation of national curriculum guidelines in indigenous literacy education settings. The discussion draws examples from documented commentary on the administration and implementation of indigenous Sami education in Finland. The paper concludes with some suggestions as to the polemic of implementing (mainstream) curriculum for the maintenance of indigenous culture and emphasises perceptions about language and literacy as important components of the ethnic identity.
