Sámi cultural heritage
Sharing image collection on Sámi cultural heritage
One project Wikimedia Norge did during The International Year of Indigenous Languages 2019 was to upload a Sámi image collection from The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History to Wikimedia Commons. The project was done with funding from The Norwegian UNESCO commission in Norway to Wikimedia Norge.
All of the uploaded pictures are located in this category on Commons – help with categorizing the images further is much appreciated! The upload is still in progress due to some technical difficulties – about half of the 3,000 images have been uploaded as of writing this.
