Literature List – Multicultural Week NTNU

This page contains a list of links to useful articles for working on academic essays and other projects about indigenous peoples (especially Sami). It is primarily designed for students in Multicultural Week at NTNU, but will be updated and expanded later.

Some links are in Norwegian and some in English. If you are looking for a specific topic or an article in a specific language that is not on the list, let me know. I have many more available!
