The Sámi museum Siida is the national museum of the Finnish Sámi and exhibits Sámi culture, art and crafts. In collections and exhibitions, it presents the spiritual and material culture of the Finnish Sámi with a purpose of maintaining the identity and the cultural selfesteem of the Sámi. On 27 March this year, Siida celebrated its 20th anniversary with a range of activities. On the same day, two new exhibitions opened. Johan Nuorgam – A Sámi Cultural Broker by the museum tells the story of the front figure of the Sámi Litto association and founder of the museum. Until January 2019, visitors can see a rare set of artefacts collected by Nuorgam in the 1930s. The other new display, Siida’s 20 Years: A Photo Show, consists of photos from the early days of Siida, showing its diverse activities.
