Who has custody of the earth?
Take the old truth to your heart:
to those who care, to them belongs the gifts of nature
the child belongs to the mother, who raises it to being responsible
the route belongs to the person who travels in the light
property belongs to the donor, strength to the open hand
the fish in the lake belongs to the one who saves for seven generations of regrowth,
for the one who sees first and decides later.
Aktene – Together for the development of Sámi cultural heritage and language is a newly launched project that will work to strengthen Sámi issues.
The project is an EU interreg project that runs until June 30th, 2020. The goal is to create a basis for long-term cooperation across the border between Sijti Jarnge in Hattfjelldal, Norway and a Sámi Center in Tärnaby.
Giron Sámi Teáhter participates in the project by adding content such as theater workshops, language educational programs, performances and lectures. During the first 8 months of the project, the childrens performance DEH! visited Tärnaby, and two days of Language Circus have been conducted for Sámi children between 6 and 11 years. The performance The Inheritance will have its premiere in Tärnaby. Support from the European Regional Development Fund makes the work possible.
