Enhancing Resilience Through Indigenous Traditional Knowledge in Ecological Restoration

Although indigenous peoples ‒ especially the Skolt Sami ‒ are deemed to be inherently resilient, they are facing the limits of their resilience due to the unprecedented rate at which climate change is altering the ecosystems in the European High Arctic of which the Finnish Lapland is a part. Ecological restoration is often used as a tool to reverse this alteration and it has been recognised that ecological restoration should consider indigenous traditional knowledge beside ecological processes. A successful case which has attracted worldwide praise in this respect is the Näätämö River project where coproduction of knowledge assisted in the restoration task. This case is used to highlight the conclusion that the resilience of the Skolt Sami can be enhanced by such collaboration of knowledge against climate change and changing ecological processes.
