Sámi ceremonies 

Sámi Museum Siida, Inari

  • 8.10.2020–28.4.2021

The Sámi Museum Siida’s temporary exhibition Sámi seremoniijat – Sámi ceremonies follows, from the point of view of the Sámi crafting tradition, how Maarit Magga prepares as a mother and an artisan for her family’s ceremonies – confirmation and baptism.


The story proceeds on several levels: those of crafting, or duodji, and Sámi values, view of life, customs and spirituality. 

The exhibition is an artstic production created by Maarit Magga. It is connected with Magga’s artistic doctoral thesis on duodji, which she is writing for the Faculty of Art and Design of the University of Lapland. Magga works as a doctoral researcher of Sámi crafts and design at the Sámi University of Applied Sciences. 

The photographs of the exhibition have been taken by Nilla-Máhtte Magga. The graphic design has been created by Tikkanen Workshop/Hannu Tikkanen. The exhibition has been supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation (Central Fund), the Sámi Museum Siida and the Sámi University of Applied Sciences. The exhibition is open at the Sámi Museum and Nature Centre Siida in Inari. The exhibition has been produced by the Sámi Museum Siida.
