Dear Lee,

Lots of work has been done with the various languages of the Sami, a first nation in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia, as well as with other parts of their culture. For a start, you may look into Sámi dutkamiid guovddáš (Centre for Sami Studies) at Romssa universitehta (University of Tromsø): http://en.uit.no/ansatte/organisasjon/hjem?p_dimension_id=88182&p_menu=42374 and Sámi allaskuvla (Sámi University College): http://www.samiskhs.no/


Kind regards,

Øyvind Eide
Unit for Digital Documentation, University of Oslo

Are we just recreating the same materials that are already available, just in a digital form, or are we creating new resources and knowledge through recovery work?
