Private Sámi Workshop from Tankavaara

Private Sámi Workshop from Tankavaara

Would you like to visit a local home and hear about the Sámi culture?  Book a private Sámi workshop. 

Tuula-Maija Magga-Hetta  is a local Sámi artist and a hostess of a local reindeer farm. By genuine reindeer farm we mean a private household earning their income from reindeer herding, not a reindeer park taking tourists for reindeer sleigh drives.  

From December to April you are invited as a guest to the home and reindeer farm Magga-Hetta.From June to November you the workshop takes place at the Sámi Cultural Gallery, which is an old Lappish house with a collection of traditional Sámi handicrafts. You will spend 1,5h with Tuula-Maija discussing about Sámi culture and having coffee . The topic can be chosen based on your interests out of the following suggestions: 

a) Sámi culture today and before: how is it possible to maintain your own identity and at the same time adapt to the society?

b) Sámi singing: what is traditional Sámi singing like and what kind of stories can you tell by singing and drumming? 

c) Reindeer farming as part of the nature and culture: how is a reindeer year like? What can you produce out of reindeer and what is the symblolic value of reindeer products?

d)  True or not: drumming takes you to the world or Lappish witch Akmeel and to the world of Lappish beliefs and traditional wisdom

Every workshop includes music and coffee with traditional lappish pastry.

Porobaari  is a local bar offering Lappish drinks, pizza and Sámi handicrafts. We'll stop here shortly on the way back to Tankavaara.
