The age-old village council structure of the Skolt Sámi people summoned all villagers together when important decisions were to be made. The decisions were reached by consensus, with breaks in between for eating, drinking and rest, to ensure that everyone was safe and sound and had the sufficient information at hand to guide the decision making.

The opening speakers of the two-day village council meeting are Aslak Holmberg and Jenni Laiti (on video) from the Ellos Deatnu! group, artists Anders Sunna, Michiel Brouwer, Outi Pieski and Marja Helander, docent Tero Mustonen and Kaisu Mustonen (Snowchange Cooperative), curator Taru Elfving (Frame Contemporary Art Finland) and the village council’s chairperson Pauliina Feodoroff.
