Sametinget Voice Of Norway audioguide Karasjok

Learn more about the Sámi Parliament

-Here in Karasjok, we have many visitors who come to look at the architecturally beautiful building, which the Sami Parliament is. Usually we hold tours inside the building, but in connection with the pandemic we have now had a great audio guide made that will give our visitors a tour of the outdoor area around the Sami Parliament, says Siv Eli Vuolab.

Makes Sami culture visible

– The corona situation brought out new ideas about how we can communicate and inform our visitors, says Siv Eli Vuolab who is a senior advisor in the communications staff in Tromsø.

– We in the communications staff want to provide information to those who come to visit and that they become curious about the Sami and the Sami Parliament. Both as an offer to the Sami population and a scheme for children, and also for tourists. Through the Voice Of Norway audio guide, this will be available in a larger format, and we have to thank the Corona situation for forcing us into new thoughts, says Vuolab.

The Sami Parliament

The Sámi Parliament’s audio guide

The Sami Parliament
- an indigenous parliament

– We are happy to be able to present the history of the Sami, the background to the Sami Parliament, the struggle for rights, customs, customs and traditions, in the audio guide, smiles Siv Eli. She goes on to say that visitors can hear about and see the particularly beautiful art, listen to joik, hear about distinctive stone from Finnmark, about the political involvement, and simply learn more about the Sami Parliament in the audio guide.

– The Sámi Parliament, a political body and an indigenous parliament, has a distinctive position in the political landscape in Norway. The building is well known both politically and architecturally.

-Initially, we offer the audio guide in Norwegian and English, since we expect Norwegians on the trip this year. If necessary, the guide comes in several languages, she smiles and says that she herself worked as a guide here when she was 15 years old.

The joke
- among Europe's oldest vocal traditions

Did you know that the Sami Parliament has its own joik?
It was made in 1989 and is owned by the Sami Parliament.

“Now you must find your way in both darkness and storm, follow the paths trodden by our ancestors, and in step with nature stake out new paths for us”

Joiker Sami Parliament

Guide experience with closeness to nature

– The Sámi Parliament is part of nature and nature is part of the building. The surrounding natural garden, which some experience as an absence of planted garden, is a natural garden with local fauna. Listen to the audio guide while smelling the forest, and let the sound of the birds and the wind join in the experience.

Special tourist spot

– We are not a typical tourist destination, but many people come to visit, and summer is high season. It is primarily political and architectural ambassadors who come here, but normally we have visits from people from all over the world.

-When we reopen, we will continue with tours, and then the audio guide is a nice supplement for those who come outside of office hours, or those who want to take a closer look at the building from the outside.
