Brief Project Description

The Pite Saami language, also known as Arjeplog Saami, is spoken by around 30 mostly elderly speakers from the Arjeplog municipality in Swedish Lapland. Due to the dominance of Swedish language, culture and politics in most aspects of everyday life, the Pite Saami language as well as traditional Pite Saami realms of experience are highly endangered. This project shall create a multimedia linguistic documentation of traditional ways of life of both semi-nomadic reindeer herders and sedentary Pite Saami families, and produce on-line lexical materials concerning these traditional realms.
