Opening ceremoni

Master of ceremonies: Carola Kleemann 

More information

The opening ceremony will start with a joik performance. A joik, or yoik with English pronunciation, is a traditional form of song in Sámi music performed by the Sámi people of Sapmi in Northern Europe. A performer of joik is called a joiker. As an art form, each joik is meant to reflect or evoke a person, animal, or place. The sound of joik is comparable to the traditional chanting of some Native American cultures. Joik shares some features with the shamanistic cultures of Siberia, which mimic the sounds of nature.

1. Key note speaker: Barbara Rogoff

Identifying Cultural Strengths:  Sophisticated Collaboration in Native Families and Communities

Introduction by Marilyn Fleer

More Information

In this talk, Barbara Rogoff will examine research on strengths for learning in Indigenous American communities, and how they fit in a larger paradigm organizing child development and learning. She will focus on a sophisticated, fluid form of collaboration that seems to be especially prevalent in a number of Indigenous-heritage communities of the Americas.  Barbara has spent 4 decades involved in a Mayan community in Guatemala, studying child development and childrearing practices. (See her book written with a Mayan midwife, “Developing Destinies: A Mayan Midwife and Town.”)  She has also done research that underlines children’s and families’ strengths for learning with local scholars in several other Native communities. The opportunity to observe and participate in Native communities has prompted Barbara and her colleagues to describe a cultural way of learning that seems to be especially common in Indigenous communities of the Americas: Learning by Observing and Pitching In to family and community endeavors (LOPI; Rogoff, 2014; Rogoff, Mejía-Arauz, & Correa-Chávez, 2015).
Ylva Nutti, Sámi University of Applied Sciences, will facilitate.
