Abstract [en]

This article highlights some perspectives in Sámi Schools concerning development of culturally based school curriculum. The research approach explores the view that education is not a neutral enterprise and the study analyses how teachers, parents and pupils develop a culturally based curriculum in practice for Sámi schools. Cultural sensitivity is considered limited in the curriculum as well as cultural knowledge and cooperation among home, school and community culture. Cultural knowledge was integrated in school practice and the notions of difference and power became more visible in the pedagogical practice during this project. Decolonizing pedagogies were used to highlight cultural knowledge and to implement new practices.
