  • Sámi Perspectives on Climate Change, Green Colonialism, Forest Firest, Industrial Exploitations and Food Sovereignty
  • 2019
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Native American and Indigenous Studies Association Annual Meeting, June 26-29 2019, Waikato University, Aotearo (New Zealand) Panel 2019Title: Sámi Perspectives on Climate Change, Green Colonialism, Forest Fires, Industrial Exploitations and Food Sovereignty. Addressing and analysing climate change leading to forest fires and burnt reindeer grazing lands in summer, as well as “locked in” reindeer food in winter, the whiteness and coloniality of "green" political campaigning, the consequences of industrial exploitations of Sémi territories — and the Sámi resistance and struggles to find solutions and challenge a colonial destructive knowledge paradigm - this panel is ultimately addressing Indigenous Food Sovereignty and thereby future survival for Indigenous peoples in general and Sami in particular. Organised by a Sámi scholar at Uppsala University, the panel brings together community, scholars and non-Sámi/ non-Indigenous scholars from Sweden, Chile/UK, South Africa approaching the theme from multiple angles and aims at setting up a network for continued collaboration among ourselves and interested NAISA participants. The panel is partly financed by a research project led by Dr May-Britt Öhman on Indigenous Climate Change Studies (FORMAS 2019- 2021), within the Swedish National Research Programme on Climate. Film and drone technology as a means for research, communication and dissemination is used. Case studies are from Jåhkåmåhkke and Ljusdal on the Swedish side of Sébme, and from the Talvivaara tin mine, Finland, where a tailing darn failure occurred in 2012-2013. Chair and organiser:  Dr May-Britt Öhman, Centre for Multidisciplinary Studies on Racism, Uppsala University and guest researcher at Luleå University of Technology, division of history. 1. Gun Aira and Anna Kajsa Aira,  Sirges Sámi Village, Jåhkåmåhkke (Jokkmokk)Sámi perspectives on climate change and imposed flexibility: experiences from reindeer herding in the Lule River valleyThis is a presentation of a documentation project regarding climate changes – from our sijdda reindeer herding group, consisting of myself, my two children and a cousin’s child. On the one hand, we document climate changes, and on the other hand we show how industrial exploitation and forestry impact on our ability to be “resilient”: an imposed flexibility.We work and live along the Lule River, moving between winter and summer lands, stretching from the mountains in the west, to 100 km east of Jåhkåmåkke. Fifty years ago, the conditions were totally different from today. The reindeer were tamer and didn’t fear humans. We worked on skis, humans and reindeer lived together under the same conditions. There were few forestry roads, and no snowmobiles with their tracks. Lichen on the trees was plentiful. The lichen on the ground was not destroyed by forestry machines. We rarely had to transport reindeer by trucks, and rarely had to support-feed them. The reindeer could support themselves most of the time.Today, due to exploitation and climate changes combined, we have to support-feed the reindeer every year. Because of rapid temperature changes, snow falls, turns to water, and then freezes, “locking in” the ground lichen. The trees are also cut down, and so no tree lichen is available.Our project departs from our perspectives, defining the problems and the solutions. The ambition is to communicate our findings and recommendations to the public and decision makers, with a view to protect our future, our Sámi culture. 2. Eva Charlotta Helsdotter, Uppsala UniversityUnder the surface: Water, pollution, and threats against Sámi food security – learning from the Talvivaara tailings dam failure Clean and safe water is the key to food security and food sovereignty. How can Sámi/Indigenous waters be protected from the destructive mining policies in the era of climate change mitigation and the scramble for metals needed for electrical cars, batteries, solar cells, and wind-power plants? How can awareness of the toxic pollution of tailings dams be raised among the public and decision-makers? This presentation is part of a film project about the Talvivaara tin mine in Finland, and the disastrous tailings dam failures in 2012-2013. A research group consisting of myself, May-Britt Öhman, and the independent filmmaker Storlöpare visited the site in 2017, conducting video interviews and documenting  the area. The failure caused massive problems. Leakage from the tailings dam is still ongoing, polluting waters all the way to the city of Oulu, and into the Baltic Sea. On the opposite side of the Baltic Sea, in Sweden, several mines are located in Sámi territories, and more mines are planned. In 2013, the Swedish government adopted a Mineral Strategy in which they claim to exploit mineral assets in a “long-term sustainable way, with consideration shown for ecological, social and cultural dimensions...”. Yet, respect for Sámi people is still lacking. The aim of the project is to reach a wider audience, and to support ongoing struggles to protect Sámi lands and waters. At NAISA, the ambition is to show an example of how to join film and scientific research, and to receive suggestions on how to proceed. 3.  Liz-Marie Nilsen and Ignacio AcostaFighting climate change and forest fires – from a Sámi perspective We present a research project documenting experiences from forest fires in two municipalities within Sámi territories.The summer of 2018 was extremely hot and dry in Sweden, with up to 50 forest fires raging simultaneously. In Jåhkåmåkke – which has 5000 inhabitants, and an area of 19 477 km2 – as many as four fires raged simultaneously during July. With the support of volunteers, and building on experiences from a major fire in 2006, disaster was avoided. In Ljusdal – which has 19000 inhabitants, and an area of 5288 km2 – the fires spread out of control, and people had to be evacuated.  Understanding what went well in Jåhkåmåkke and what went wrong in Ljusdal may provide lessons to be learned: it is not only about climate change, it is also about firefighting competence. Another aspect, highlighted from the Sámi perspective, concerns disaster relief: while forest owners resort to insurance, there is no such relief for reindeer herders, as they don’t own the grazing lands. According to the Sámi Parliament’s application for disaster relief to the Swedish government, 31 out of 51 Sámi reindeer herding villages and 21 500 hectare of grazing lands burned.Due to climate change we can expect more of the same in the future. Thus the consequences of forest fires for reindeer grazing need to be addressed and mitigated, at the same time as it is of major importance to reclaim local and traditional knowledge on firefighting, demanding that the actors involved are prepared and ready when it happens again. 4. Scott Burnett, Wits Centre for Diversity Studies, University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg)The whiteness of green ideology: Swedish environmentalism as colonial vanguardThe violent occupation and appropriation of land in Sápmi for Swedish hydro- and wind-power projects has been opposed by Sámi scholars and activists for over a century. Yet Sweden has maintained its reputation on the world stage both as a humanitarian and green “superpower”. The narrative of “good Sweden” has worked to (re)produce the nation as a space where whiteness is the unquestioned norm, and settler colonialism passes as common sense. Environmentalist communication in this context shapes ethical subjectivity, and legitimises the colonial base of the modern welfare state.This paper presents a discourse-theoretical analysis of the construction of “renewable” energy around the 2018 elections. It investigates closely the Swedish Green Party’s election platform at a national level, and also zooms in to Jåhkåmåkke municipality, and Sámi candidate Henrik Blind’s successful campaign for office. While Sámi issues remain “unspeakable” at a national level, local political texts reveal complex accommodations and contestations. I argue that mainstream Swedish environmentalism constructs the argument for renewable energy as a series of impossible choices.While this research has been pursued in conversation with Sámi scholars, I do not speak for or from a Sámi position. I am a descendant of the European settler colonialists of South Africa, and I have recently relocated to Sweden. My approach to critical “race” and indigenous studies research is to problematise the colonial centre and the “whiteness” it reproduces, in the tradition of critical whiteness and settler colonial studies.

My own academic field being History of Science and Technology, the method involves collaboration with different academic disciplines, inviting co-researchers from other academic disciplines; amongst other water resource management, political science, and archeology. Furthermore, I integrate knowledges and people outside academia. This approach goes along with the argument by scholar Haraway, about “situated knowledges” and “partial perspectives” in regard to the production of scientific knowledge.[1]  In my interpretation, it also includes the necessity for me as a researcher, and Sámi, to take a stance and not pretend to be “neutral” in front of colonial destructive natural resource exploitation of Indigenous Peoples water- and landscapes. I will describe parts of this work, and the challenges it involves, along with the important work of healing that I find equally important.[1] Donna Haraway, ”Situated knowledges: The Science question in Feminism and the privilege of partial perspective”, Haraway Simians, Cyborgs and Women: The reinvention of Nature (New York, Routledge, 1991), 183-201.

  • Yttrande Remiss av promemoria vattenmiljö och vattenkraft Diarienummer: M2017/01639/R Sammanfattning
  • 2017
  • Rapport (populärvet., debatt m.m.)abstract
    • SammanfattningJag instämmer i stort i promemorians förslag om uppdatering till moderna miljövillkor för vattenkraftselproduktion och dess genomförande.Dock saknas vissa aspekter som behöver täckas in bättre genom att särskilt uppmärksammas, förslagsvis genom den föreslagna nationella planen och genom att berörda grupper, och inte enbart myndigheter här ges tillfälle att yttra sig samt att det bör anslås medel till organisationer och forskningsinsatser för förstärkt uppföljning.Däribland bör samiska organisationer och Sametinget, samt bygdeföreningar och andra berörda föreningar vid reglerade vattendrag och nedströms dammar ges anslag för att kunna bevaka frågeställningarna på ett kontinuerligt sätt.Myndigheter – kommuner och länsstyrelser – saknar i stor utsträckning resurser för nödvändig uppföljning, vilket behöver ses över. Dessutom är det nödvändigt att bygga upp stärkt kompetens i dessa frågor genom såväl forskning som kontinuerlig informationsförmedling och uppdatering. För detta krävs särskilda anslag och insatser, med samhällsvetenskapliga och sociotekniska perspektiv som bygger på redan genomförd forskning samt fortsatta forskningsinsatser.Yttrandet bygger på ett flertal forskningsprojekt (se uppställning i slutet av dokumentet) utförda vid Uppsala universitet, Umeå universitet och Luleå tekniska universitet om dammsäkerhet – såväl allmänhetens säkerhet vid dammar, som säkerhetsfrågor i förhållande till dammbrott – dess förebyggande samt förberedelser för situationer med dammbrott. Aspekterna ifråga som ytterligare behöver uppmärksammas är följande:1. Människors hälsa och säkerhet vid normal drift, dvs ej vid dammbrott eller risk för dammbrott – även kallat ”allmänhetens säkerhet vid dammar” – ”public safety around dams”.2. Djurs hälsa och säkerhet vid normal drift, dvs ej vid dammbrott eller risk för dammbrott.3. Avsaknad av perspektiv på ansvarsfördelning för och säkerhetsåtgärder när två aktörer som båda använder sig samma älv och har dammar som innebär risker för människors hälsa samt miljön, dvs vattenkraftsföretag och gruvföretag i samma älvsystem.4. Avsaknad av perspektiv på nedströms konsekvenser och förberedelser för dammbrott i stora dammar utifrån sociotekniska hänsynstaganden.

  • Be smart, live long : the relationship between cognitive and non-cognitive abilities and mortality
  • 2015
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • I study the association between cognitive and non-cognitive abilities and mortality, and investigate how well income and education act as proxy measures for ability. The risk of premature mortality is estimated using Cox proportional hazard models with a dataset of 692,303 Swedish men aged 18-20 years, enlisted between the years 1969-1983, and deaths between the years 1969 and 2009. Results suggest that both cognitive and non-cognitive abilities are strongly associated with mortality, independently and through income and education. Non-cognitive ability is a stronger predictor of the risk of mortality than cognitive ability. For middle and high income earners, and individuals with a college education, there are no associations between the abilities and mortality. However, for low income earners and individuals without a college education, cognitive and non-cognitive ability have strong associations with mortality. Results are mainly driven by the bottom of the measured ability distributions.

  • Competing for ideal bodies a study of exergames used as teaching aids in schools
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Critical Public Health. - Abingdon, United Kingdom : Routledge. - 0958-1596. ; 24:2, s. 196-209
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Since the development of the welfare state, the Swedish school subject Health and Physical Education (HPE) has been regarded as an important site for public health work, and still assumes a central role in promoting the health of the coming generation. A specific type of health intervention, promoted by researchers in recent years, is the use of so-called exergames. In some countries, these fitness games are used as teaching aids in physical education classes and can be seen as examples of how public health issues and popular culture are shaping HPE in schools. The aim of the study reported in this paper is to examine which messages about health and body are offered, and how these are expressed in some of the fitness games used as teaching aids in school. The results of the study highlight the dangers of using exergames in the teaching of HPE in schools. The messages communicated by the games have a number of potentially harmful consequences, particularly with regard to the creation of specific health and bodily norms based on a measurable ideal. The use of this tool in education is thus far from value free, and the problems that might be solved when using the games are not necessarily the ones that education should privilege.
