The Utility and Artistry of Sami Knives with the Sami Cultural Center

Aired on Thu, Nov 5 at 7:00pm

Knives are essential to traditional Sami ways and are known for their exceptional beauty and everyday usefulness. Nathan Muus, Sami Cultural Center of North America board member and exhibit curator, will feature some of the knives he has encountered with a special look at knives displayed at the Sami Cultural Center. Knife handles and sheaths of antler and bone are carefully detailed in scrimshaw—practical and portable works of art. They each have a story and often tell a tale in themselves.
