Celebration of the Indigenous master’s students 12 June we celebrated the Indigenous master’s students who had been studying for two years. On behalf of the students Jean Kavanagh gave this speech:

UiT to present award for best master’s thesis on Indigenous peoples UiT has established the Árdna Award and will present it to the student with the best master’s thesis of the year that focuses on Indigenous peoples. The prize comes with 10 000 NOK and a Riddu Riđđu festival pass.
