A young Sámi reindeer herder is suing the Norwegian state over the implementation of a forced reindeer slaughter policy that will drive him out of his livelihood and thereby his culture and inherited rights. He has won twice in court, but the state is now taking the case to the supreme court in Oslo 4-5 of december. The case sets a hugely important precedent, in terms of indigenous rights in Norway and the rights of reindeer herders in particular — which is why the state is fighting it tooth and nail.

Om Pile o´Sapmi

Pile o´Sápmi er et kunstnerisk verk som ble laget som en protest og som et symbol på statlig tvangsslakting av rein i Finnmark. Kunstneren Maret Anne Sara satte opp verket utenfor Indre Finnmark tingrett i februar 2016, mens broren Jovsset Ante Sara gikk til rettssak mot staten i kamp om sine rettigheter. Pile o´Sápmi forgrenet seg parallelt til å bli en tverrfaglig kunstbevegelse der Sara henter inn relevant kunst og kunstnere for å fremme debatt.
