OHTSEDIDH – SAMI CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS IN CENTRAL SWEDEN
The project Ohtsedidh – Sami cultural expressions in Central Sweden has produced a traveling exhibition that tells about Sami traces in the regions of Dalarna, Gävleborg and Västmanland.
The exhibition contributes to an increased knowledge of the older Sami culture and complements the current image of the Sami as a nomadic, reindeer-herding people who belong in the mountain world. The history of the Sami contains so many more stories than the established one, e.g. about parishioners as a professional group, about skilled craftsmen, about a people who lived with and by nature and therefore left few traces behind.
The exhibition is primarily aimed at schools, but is interesting and important for all county residents. For schools that want to work with Sami traces in our regions, a work material linked to the exhibition and the website has been produced.
You will find teacher and student materials here
The history of Sweden
Digital teaching resource
How can a Viking treasure found in Mora teach you more about hygiene in the Viking Age? And how did a pilgrimage mark from France end up in Dalarna? You can learn about this and much more via the Dalarna Museum's lessons on the digital teaching resource Sweden's history.
Sweden's History is a new, national investment in the history subject for compulsory school and is launched by the State Historical Museums, Dalarna Museum and sixteen other museums from all over the country.
With the museums' collections as a base, all students and teachers are offered an interactive teaching resource, which is based on the curriculum and which has been developed in close collaboration with the school. The resource is available to everyone and free for everyone. The history of Sweden is a source of fun-filled learning, where students gain knowledge of history, while building the ability to critically examine and history awareness.
Our hope is that schools around the country will see The history of Sweden as a valuable asset in teaching.
Color a valley painting
Valley painting refers to a popular decorative painting, which first appeared on furniture but later wandered out on the walls of well-to-do farmers.
Dalmåleriet is perhaps one of the most unique in Swedish folk art and reaches its peak around the turn of the century 1800.
