Research project The aim of this project is to examine how the teaching content in Sami education in Sweden successively has become ethnified through the democratization of the educational system, from 1942 to the present.
The process of educational democratization and “etnification” in Swedish Sápmi will be studied through seven case studies, focussing on the Nomadic/Sami School and the Sami Folk High School. In curriculum and detailed teaching instructions for the former school, there has been an ambition to balance two separate objectives; to offer an education that is equivalent to the one given in “regular” schools, while at the same time strengthening Sami identity and preserving Sami culture.
