Mii contains cultural and contemporary objects, interactive displays, movie clips, images and text which gives the visitor the opportunity to learn more about the different themes.

Sjit helvedes kåken or A shithole of a shack
This historic house is known as both Sjåbakkenhuset (Sjåbakken’s house) and Sjit helvedes kåken (can be translated to a shithole of a shack) and has these two names for good reasons.

A man by the name Anton Sjåbakken lived in this house after coming back home after the 2nd World War. His original home, like the other houses in the Manndalen, had been burnt down by the Germans during the 2nd World War, in 1944.

If you want to visit Sjåbakkhuset send an e-mail to: post@nordligefolk.no or call: +47 91104059.

Temporary Exhibitions
In our gallery we put up temporary exhibitions several times a year. Check our homepage for current exhibitions. www.senterfornordligefolk.no

Sea sami kitchen
Our sea sami kitchen focuses on local food traditions and serve sea sami dishes from North Troms. You can order food for any kind of gatherings and celebrations.

Cultural path
If you have the time, drive up to the end of the Manndalen valley. Here in Čáhput / Svartskogen you can follow a trail and learn about the local history in the valley, with its stories and legends.

The highlight in the summer, the indigenious festival Riddu Riđđu. At the Riddu-field you can see living quarters such as gamme, lavvu and Nisga’a house. These can be experienced year round.

Through our website www.nordligefolk.no we tell stories about our diverse region.

It is possible to rent meeting rooms, cultural hall, gamme, the Nisg̱a'a house and/or order delicious food from our kitchen. Perhaps you have a dream of consuming a Sea Sami meal in a traditional gamme?
