ČálliidLágádus means “Authors’ Publisher” in the indigenous language of the North Sámi. We are a Sámi publisher committed to bringing knowledge of relevance to the Sámi people written in the Sámi languages. We have a twofold vision: to promote awareness about issues relevant to the Sámi people while at the same time promoting and strengthening Indigenous linguistic literacy and competence in our communities. Our publications come in a variety of formats and genres.
We also seek to engage the international audience, our allies, and other interested parties about the conditions, history, and culture of the Sámi and other Indigenous peoples. So as to reach the broadest audience around the globe, we will be publishing more titles in English both in print and in easily accessible electronic formats. ČálliidLágádus sponsors local events and also actively participates in local and international conferences, lectures, and workshops about Sámi and Indigenous peoples’ rights, issues, and cultures. We welcome new knowledge and perspectives.
