ᐊᖏᕐᕋᒧᑦ (angirramut) in Inuktitut or ruovttu guvlui in North Sámi mean “towards home.” To move towards home is to reflect on where Sámi people and Inuit people find home, on what their connections to their lands means, and on what these relationships could look like moving into the future. Informed by the perspectives of a group of Inuit, Sámi, and settler co-editors, ᐊᖏᕐᕋᒧᑦ / Ruovttu Guvlui / Towards Home: Inuit and Sámi Placemaking explores Northern Indigenous forms of sovereignty shaped by an understanding of the land as home. It emphasizes caring for and living on the land as a way of being, and celebrates practices of spacemaking and placemaking that empower Indigenous communities.

 

This publication presents memories, experiences, and projections that hold the potential to shape what home in and for Northern Indigenous communities can be. It ultimately asks: Where is home? Where does land begin? And where do we go from here?

 

With an aim to support the growth and revitalization of Indigenous languages, ᐊᖏᕐᕋᒧᑦ / Ruovttu Guvlui / Towards Home: Inuit and Sámi Placemaking features Inuktitut and North Sámi text alongside English.
