Sami Báiki Project in Alaska

Báiki: The International Sami Journal

Báiki is a major English-language source of information about Sami arts, literature, history, spirituality, and environmental concerns. It also covers news of North American Sami community events.

"Báiki" [bah-h'kee] is the nomadic reindeer-herding society's word for cultural identity and survival, "the home that lives in the heart." The beautifully illustrated 28-page biannual publication began in 1991 and is now in its 23rd issue.

Climate Change and Indigenous People

Indigenous groups will likely be the people affected most immediately and severely by climate change. For this reason, significant responses and actions are needed. Increasing public awareness and increasing participation in policy making in particular are needed.

CEED organized a panel, Climate Change & Indigenous Peoples: Responses and Actions, at the 2005 Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, in Eugene, OR. Information about the panel and related links.
