Tråante 2017 is a celebration marking the 100 years that have passed since the first congress for the Sami people. That meeting was held in Trondheim between February 6th and 9th in 1917.
Tråante 2017 is both a national celebration in Norway and a jubilee for Sami people from Sweden, Finland and Russia as well. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration of course, regardless of cultural background.
During the celebration there will be a certain focus on democracy, justice and diversity. What we want is that Tråante 2017 gives people better understanding about the sami people; their culture and history during this centennial.
In addition to our programme for Trondheim there will be a variety of celebrations and happenings all over Sapmi (the sami area) in 2017.
