Rock carvings in a Saami perspective: some comments on politics and ethnicity in archaeology / Odd Mathis Haetta.

Title: Rock carvings in a Saami perspective: some comments on politics and ethnicity in archaeology / Odd Mathis Haetta.
Author(s): Haetta, Odd Mathis.
Date: 1995.
Publisher: Oslo: Novus
In: Perceiving rock art : social and political perspectives. (1995.), Vol. 20
Abstract: Saami researchers have to work against background of prejudice in which talk of "Saami ethnicity" is unacceptable, even from Middle Ages. Author quotes Zachrisson on political consequences of finding Saami graves beyond core area. Saami Iron Age came to be studied only in 1970s. In schools, Saami history and culture are almost nil, but one may expect some knowledge of these at interval after scholars notice them. Themes of Alta carvings are too general to be attributed ethnically - boats, skis, elk, bears, even shaman drums cannot be ascribed, and certainly not to ancestors of today's Norwegians.
