This allowed her tribe to share cultural information with younger generations while simultaneously protecting it from appropriation. Saami woman Jannie Staffansson of Norway speaks of community knowledge systems and how climate change has been affecting her lands. Her work for the Arctic Council allowed her to blend Western and traditional sciences to develop fundamental principles on the use of Indigenous knowledge (samu) to help guide the work of the Saami in the Arctic Council.
