EALLU plans to implement an international seminar on Arctic indigenous food culture, involving Arctic indigenous reindeer herding youth, contributing to competence building, and bridging knowledge gaps between the generations of indigenous elders and youth on food culture in the circumpolar north. The seminar will include insights into indigenous peoples understanding of biodiversity and food cultures and contain the following topics:

  • Reindeer meat quality from an Indigenous perspective
  • Reindeer meat quality within two spheres of knowing
  • Tools and methods to document reindeer herders traditional knowledge about meat quality and food culture
  • Sámi concepts and language related to the documentation of food culture
  • Gender perspectives of Sámi reindeer herders food culture
  • The value of reindeer meat, blood and bones
