The Sámi Cultural Centre, to be built on the bank of River Juutuanjoki in Inari, in Finland, will become the centre of Sámi culture and administration.


The purpose of the Sámi Cultural Centre is to create better possibilities for the Sámi in Finland to preserve and develop their own language, culture and business activities as well as to manage and develop their cultural self-government and to support the development of their general living conditions.


The Cultural Centre fundamentally improves the possibilities of passing information about the Sámi people as the indigenous people of Finland. The Centre will attract national and international interest, and it will become an exciting meeting place of multiculturalism.


The Sámi Cultural Centre is funded by 5 million euros by the European regional development fund.
