A lower culture, a people with no history? / Veli-Pekka Lehtola.

Title: A lower culture, a people with no history? / Veli-Pekka Lehtola.
Author(s): Lehtola, Veli-Pekka.
Date: 1997.
Publisher: Tromsø, Norway: Senter for samiske studier
In: Stat, religion, etnisitet. (1997.),
Abstract: Paper describes image of Saami in nationalist Finland of 1920s. Social Darwinism lingered late in Finland, which had just achieved independence, and not only scientists but tourists were still liable to enter Lapp dwellings to measure skulls. Lack of written history and enduring nomadic way of life were taken as signs of primitiveness. It was not recognised that siida system was complex and time-tested, until proper investigations were carried out by V Tanner and K Nickul between wars.
