Self-Government for Arctic Peoples

Many indigenous peoples in the Arctic favor a move to self-governance. Greenland, with its Home Rule Government, the formation of the new territory of Nunavut in Canada, and the Scandinavian Sami (also: Saami) Parliaments are the most advanced examples.

•  In Canada, the Nunavut Territorial Government ensures that Inuit culture and values become an important part of government operations.

•  The Norwegian Sami Parliament can deal with everything that has to do with the Sami people, giving them a certain amount of authority in areas such as language, culture, industry and education.

•  Finland has a Sami Parliament to address Sami rights and economic, social and cultural conditions. It is not an authority under the Finnish government and therefore has considerable independence.

•  The Sami Parliament of Sweden recognizes the Sami as an indigenous people group, and promotes their identity, togetherness, and social and political issues.
