Wikimedia Norge marked the Sámi Language week, Giellevakkhu, with different activities. Together with The National Library in Norway and Giellatekno at UiT The Arctic University of Norway we launched a collaboration om Sámi place names. There is a project page for the collaboration here in Norwegian and the press release from The National Library can be read here.
During Giellavakkhu Inari Sámi Wikipedia was launched. Congratulations! We have written about the Inari Sámi Wikipedia project on the Wikimedia Foundation blog, Diff.
The goal of the Sami language week is to raise the status of the Sámi languages, and to increase knowledge of Sámi languages and culture. The Sámi Language Week is a collective volunteer effort to highlight and increase knowledge of the Sámi languages throughout society. Private and public institutions, businesses, organizations and other actors are invited to make Sami languages visible during Giellavakkhu to make sure the Sámi languages are being heard, spoken and used in all areas of society.
