Vue’ddin njõđđum võõnâs – Revitalizing a traditional Skolt Saami root-sewn boat
The construction of a traditional Skolt Saami root-sewn boat was was made in collaboration of Sámi Museum Siida and the Sámi Education Institute. Project started in Fall 2014. Boat was inaugurated in August 2016 in Sevettijärvi.
The boat is based on a model from Petsamo from the early 20th century, and made by sewing planks together with roots instead of metal nails. Building the boat was a community effort of remembering, as many things had to be pieced together from archives, experientially, and through stories.

Maaddâr ääkk šaamšiǩ – Oldermors lue
Med de Norske myndighetenes hjelp har man nesten klart å utrydde den skolte samiske kulturen i Norge, MEN ikke alt.
Venke Tørmænen i fra Pasvik er skoltesame, og kvinne lua i hennes kultur er et av de sterkeste symbolene for tilhørighet til den delen av samisk kultur.
Og den skolte samiske kvinne lua «ŠAAMŠIǨ» blir symbolet til filmens reise både i nåtid og historien til Skolte samene på Norsk side.
Film: Harry Johansen, Anstein Mikkelsen
