My intention with my paper is to describe traditional mathematical knowledge and learning within the Sámi culture. My paper describes the traditional mathematical knowledge connected to the indigenous knowledge systems and traditional Sámi knowledge system, and the view of learning within the Sámi culture. Is it possible to the development an education in mathematics in the Sámi schools which emerges from the Sámi culture, the traditional Sámi knowledge system and indigenous knowledge systems? The Sámi schools in Sweden follow the national regulations but the Sámi pupils also have to be confident in the Sámi cultural inheritance and they have to be able to speak, read and write in Sámi. In accordance with the Sámi schools ordinance there is a need for an education that is aware of and have a base in the Sámi culture. My research intention is to describe the mathematical thoughts within the Sámi culture. My aim is to try to express possibilities and problems to connect the education in mathematics in the Sámi schools with the Sámi culture.
