Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This study examines key issues of equity and social justice in Saami education in
Finland by considering various perspectives on quality in indigenous education and its desired outcomes as perceived by authorities, teachers, parents, students, and elders (N = 10). A content analysis of these perspectives and practices was conducted to determine the key features of successful teaching and identify developmental issues that arise in diverse settings. Furthermore, in the case study, video recordings and teacher-simulated recall are analysed in the context of Saami language education outside the Saami homeland to describe daily practices in Saami education. This case study is part of UNESCO international research on improving the lives of indigenous youth worldwide.
