CULTURAL REPRESENTATIONS are constructed through interaction of cultural researchers and culture bearers. A study of collaborative processes that resulted in published representations of Sámi and Seto traditional culture requires an exploration of the emerged voices and representational agencies, editorial activities and reception histories. The focus of this book revolves around two manifestly representative texts from the early twentieth century: Johan Turi’s story of Sámi experience Muitalus sámiid birra and the Seto epic Peko performed by Anne Vabarna. The current analysis of the complex performative interaction between the culture bearer, his or her repertoire, and the culture researcher benefits from an interdisciplinary anthropological and folkloristic approach, informed by hybridity and the blurring of disciplinary boundaries in historicizing inquiries into documentation and textual practices. Printed Pages: 282.
