Abstract
The exploitation of Sápmi, Sami land, began about 400 years ago. With a post-colonial approach, I, in this essay analyse the discourses behind the law that regulates reindeer herding. With a critical discourse analysis of a government bill (proposition 1971:51) with post-colonial and Marxist theories, I show that discourses of profit and development influence the way Sami culture is perceived. In prop. 1971:51 Sami culture is presumed to be endangered, due to the supposed economic inefficiency of reindeer herding. To save Sami culture, proposition 1971:51 suggests that the reindeer herding should be rationalized. I argue that these discourses are being influenced by a bigger capitalistic discourse of profit.
