Abstract [en]

This article analyses Swedish Sami policy during more than a century. By this historical perspective the author shows how public policy constitutes a ‘true’ and ‘authentic’ indigenous identity, which both delimits legitimate political action and maintains a political order founded on hierarchical premises. Self-determination of indigenous peoples in terms of the power to define the people in question and their indigeneity is decisive to break away from this legacy, the author concludes.
