Research in the Fávllis network

Two research projects compose the main elements in the Fávllis network:

I. Fjord ecosystems - sami communities: Local ecological knowledge and socio-ecological history

II. Traditional knowledge and management of fjords as ecosystems and cultural landscapes

In Descember 2007 Fávllis received funding from the Norwegian Research Council (the programme The Oceans and the Coastal Areas) for parts of the project Fjord ecosystems - sami communities: Local ecological knowledge and socio-ecological history. (The short version of the project title: Local knowledge and fjord ecology). The aim of the project is to bring forth management relevant knowledge about northern fjords. In 2008, Fávllis received funding from the program for Sámi research in the Norwegian Research Council for another project: Traditional knowledge and management of fjords as ecosystems and cultural landscapes.

A main subject of these projects is traditional ecological knowledge in selected fjords in coastal Sámi areas. In the last project this focus is extende to include the landscape dimension, and especially the culture landscape concept in a coastal Sámi context. In addition a specific Sámi linguistics part and also film for documentation, research and dissemination is included.

The projects are carried out in collaboration with researchers at other institutions both in Norway, Canada and the U.S., as well as employees at Sami knowledge institutions (Porsanger and Tana in Finnmark county and Kåfjord in Troms county).

The Fávllis researchers are also participating in two other projects focusing on sea Sami areas, where they are involved in arranging and publishing Sami language material on fisheries.
