An indigenous group in Norway has taken matters in to own hands to combat stereotypes about their way of life.

The young Sami people of Norway have entered the classrooms of their fellow non-Sami youth to teach them more about Sami culture and indigenous rights.

The hope is that indigenous people in other countries will find inspiration in the project, which is called 'Sami Pathfinders'.
