Abstract [en]

In the present chapter an indigenous perspective on Nordic Place Branding is attempted to bring to the fore, especially by focusing on Sámi and Sápmi. Today the Sámi Parliaments of the Scandinavian countries take an active interest in issues related to the branding and marketing of Sámi culture. This implies that Sámi agency and entrepreneurship are highlighted as essential elements of sustainable and ethically responsible tourism. As the ethical guidelines developed by the Sámi Parliament in Inari show, there is no tolerance of exploitation of elements from Sámi culture or dissemination of top-down, ridiculing images and narratives of the Sámi. This new narrative of Sámi entrepreneurship in the tourist industry co-exists with Sámi anticolonial protest against plans to use the lands of the Sámi, be it for the establishment of mines, wind power parks in the mountains, or the marketing of hunting trips to areas used by reindeer herders. As an indigenous people the Sámi have a claim on the land. Land use, as well as immaterial and material culture, are potentially attractive assets which may stimulate branding and marketing of tourism in Sápmi by the Sámi themselves.

2018 (English)In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 93-109Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article examines the Tornedalian author Bengt Pohjanen’s construction of Meänmaa [literally ‘Our land’] through an analysis of a selection of texts in which the concept “Meänmaa” is used. Meänmaa refers to the border area between Sweden and Finland in the Torne Valley. The making of Meänmaa is related to ethnofuturism, an aesthetic program launched in Estonia in the 1980s. Its aim is to strengthen threatened Uralic cultures and languages. The conclusion presented is that ethnofuturism provides a framework for present-day identity formation and the making of a specific place called Meänmaa against the backdrop of a history of assimilationist policies and marginalisation.
