Reindeer Herding news

Program available for the Internatiobal Reindeer Husbandry Conference 2022. The conference sums up the RIEVDAN project about traditional knowledge of reindeer husbandry in a changing world. 

Maajja-Krihke Bransfell, a Sámi reindeer herder from Røros, Norway, attended the Assembly and took part in the Arctic Innovation Lab, a pitch competition for the Arctic youth organized by Harvard Kennedy School.

Over generations, the reindeer have moved over Øyfjellet in Vefsn, Nordland. There are now 72 wind turbines here that prevent the reindeer from getting to winter pastures.

Academic conference on the traditional knowledge of reindeer husbandry in a changing world within the Riedvan project will be held in Kautokeino, Norway 30 November – 1 December 2022. Click here to register
