The Beautiful Norwegian Sami Storeroom
In Craft by Anja, July 26, 2017
This is a Sami storeroom (Áittit in Sami, stabbur in Norwegian) in northern Norway. The Sami people are the indigenous Scandinavians who live across Norway, Sweden, Finland and northwestern Russia. For the nomadic Sami storerooms were built to return to as they moved from place to place herding reindeer. These storerooms were tucked away, safe, in remote locations. The Sami Parliament have been documenting these since 2011 to protect their cultural heritage.
Here you can read more about the history of the Sami and see pictures of Sami Áittit and other shelters.
