    Att göra sin stämma hörd: Svenska Samernas Riksförbund, samerörelsen och svensk samepolitik 1950-19622003Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The formation of Svenska Samernas Riksförbund (SSR) [The National Association of Swedish Sami] on October the 3rd 1950 marked the beginning of a new development in the Sami movement in Sweden. During the first half of the 20th century the Sami movement in Sweden had had problems with maintaining continuity in their work and keeping an ongoing dialogue with the authorities due to the lack of a unifying organization. Through the creation of SSR the situation changed and the Sami movement was enabled to act with growing strength.

    The study focuses on the period 1950-1962, during which time SSR established itself in the political arena and began making its mark on the Swedish Sami policy. Four areas are singled out for analysis. The question of Sami rights and Sami livelihood is the first of these. Reindeer herding had been at the centre of the Sami policy since the late 19th century, and this continued during this period. The industry was also central in SSR, and the organization focussed most of its attention on issues concerning the reindeer herders. The industry had problems during the period, not least due to the exploitation of the Sami area for other purposes, but where SSR tried to emphasise these external factors when analyzing the problems, the authorities mainly focussed on internal problems. The traditional Sami rights to use the land for reindeer herding and hunting and fishing was also discussed, where SSR claimed a stronger right to the land, something the authorities did not support. Secondly, the image of the Sami was central in the discussions. The traditional image established in the Sami policy was that of the Sami as reindeer herders. This had the effect that the majority of the Sami, who were not reindeer herders, were excluded from the Sami context. During most of the examined period SSR did not challenge this image; it was only from 1960 and onwards that the organization tried to establish a broader view of the Sami within the policy area, a more inclusive view based on their position as an indigenous population in Sweden.

    The third area that has been examined was how SSR acted internally towards and treated different Sami groups. The outspoken ambition of the organization was to represent all Sami in Sweden, but in reality the reindeer herders and their interests dominated the work of SSR. This created tension within the organization, since the non-reindeer herding Sami felt that their problems were neglected by SSR. However, the organization also had problems with getting the support of all the reindeer herders as well, since both the forest Sami and many of the reindeer herders not working actively within SSR felt that the organization did not really represent them. Fourthly, the impact of the demands put forward by SSR on the Sami policy has been examined. The organization rather quickly became established as an actor in the policy area, and was given a role as a consultative body. This, however, did not mean that SSR was successful in getting results based on its demands. The positive results of the work of the organization were few and small, but, nevertheless, the fact that SSR became established in the policy area meant that the authorities to a larger extent had to take the opinion of the Sami into consideration and motivate the direction of the Sami policy more thoroughly.

    Borders, citizenship and change: the case of the Sami people, 1751-20082010In: Citizenship Studies, ISSN 1362-1025, E-ISSN 1469-3593, Vol. 14, no 5, p. 543-556Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Sami, an indigenous people in north-western Europe, toady faces the challenge of having their territory, Sápmi, partitioned among four nation-states; Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Whereas borders and citizenship generally are used to defend cultures, interests and territories, separating those who belong from those who do not, this perspective does not include how a non-dominant indigenous people such as the Sami is affected by the partitioning of their territory. Initially, when the first borders were established, the states showed respect and consideration for the Sami and their rights, but during the following centuries more and more restrictions were being placed on the trans-border movement of the Sami people. In this process the Sami also had to become citizens in one of the states, and even though the process of changing citizenship remained relatively uncomplicated up until the early twentieth century, the partitioning of the Sami into separate national arenas caused divisions within the people. This article focuses on how the establishment of state borders partitioning Sápmi and the enforced citizenship in the states affected the Sami, and how they acted in response to this development.

    Abstract [en]

    The period 1900-1950 was an establishment phase for the Sami movement in Sweden, during which it developed from a situation where individual leaders were instrumental for any actions to a national organization. The leaders had several obstacles to overcome in this process, such as a structural subordination of the Sami in Swedish society and active resistance towards Sami organization from the Lapp Administration and the County Administrative Boards. Three persons dominated the movement during the period, Elsa Laula, Torkel Tomasson and Gustav Park, but their strategies and attitudes differed significantly. Laula and Tomasson were political idealists; they wanted to strengthen the position of the Sami to negotiate with the state through the creation of an organizational network led by a national Sami organization. Their idealism seems to have bordered on naïveté, however, as the number of local Sami societies continually were too few and economically weak to achieve this. Park, on the other hand, was skeptical of the possibilities to establish a national organization, as he deemed the level of political activity among the Sami population as too low. Direct action was the strategy preferred by Park, where problems could be attacked more directly and results could be achieved quickly. He would, however, more or less by necessity, change his opinion, and in 1950 he became the chairman of the first national Sami organization in Sweden.
