ohtsedidh – Sami cultural expressions in central Sweden

For a long time there has been a Sami population in Dalarna. In archives and in folk tradition, a group of people who live a little apart from, but still in symbiosis with, the surrounding society emerges. Despite the fact that there are many sources, we know very little about the Sami cultural history in the region.

We recommend the program for grades 4-6 and 7-9.
