n-ORA-way, get it?

Right now I’m in Norway as part of the Carleton Norway Journalism Travel Award. I’m here with Samia Madwar and we’re living in Kirkenes, in the very north-eastern part of the country.

It’s a beautiful, sometimes cold, sometimes not place and we are doing a lot of travelling around the area. For instance, right now I’m in Finland and next week I’ll be in Russia.

The Sami 

While here, I am researching for a story to compare the struggle for self-government by Norwegian and Canadian indigenous people. In Norway (and other Nordic countries, the native people are Sami).

Follow my research and other adventures on my website or on Twitter with the hashtag #NorwayCU
