Abstract [en]

This paper attempts to elucidate Sámi children's experience of school and to interpret the meaning of their experiences. The Sámi children's experience of school is made apparent with the aid of creative activity in the form of the production of drawings, combined with subsequent oral comments. The children who were included in the study live within the municipal area of Jokkmokk in the County of Norrbotten in northern Sweden. They attend a special school for Sámi children and were all aged between nine and twelve years old. During the analysis of the drawings five different themes emerged, which are presented without any relative order of precedence. The themes are tasks, the future, relationship, time and health. The results which emerged, in the form of the Sámi children's experience of school, indicate that these children's experiences have many nuances which are not recognised by mainstream systems. If these multi-faceted experiences are to be considered by the school and the needs of these children met, it is necessary to first understand the ways in which these children experience school and then to take these understandings into account in teaching situations.
