Dear all;

A new book on Ainu and Saami 'Indigenous efflorescence' has been
released and is freely available online:

In this book we have sought to introduce the concept of Indigenous
efflorescence both as a descriptive label for a real-world process, and
as an analytical frame for thinking about that process. Descriptively,
Indigenous efflorescence refers to the demographic surge in Indigenous
populations, coupled with their increasing political empowerment,
economic success and cultural flourishing, all of which have gathered
pace over the second half of the twentieth century and into the
twenty-first century. As an analytical framework, Indigenous
efflorescence involves a commitment to explore these phenomena in a way
that is process oriented (rather than product oriented) and future
(rather than past) oriented, and, finally, is also positively engaged in
supporting Indigenous peoples to deepen and spread Indigenous
In order to provide a rich account and exploration of this process of
efflorescence, the contributions to this volume were organised around
the themes of contexts and practices of efflorescence. In looking at the
contexts of efflorescence, we drew attention to the economic and
political developments that have enabled Indigenous efflorescence, and
at how social movements, technological developments, and access to and
control over land underpin Indigenous efflorescence. Meanwhile, in
looking at practices of efflorescence, we examined how ongoing
structures of colonialism continue to condition not only what can viably
be done by Indigenous people, but also how it feels to participate in

The whole book:


Our chapter:

Mustonen describes distinctly Sami ways of interacting with seen and
unseen elements of the landscape, and ways of being with the land, which
are essential for not only maintaining local environments in the face of
climate change, but also for fostering other aspects of local culture,
in a holistic relationship between land, people and culture.
