This paper is about some objects of Sami origin and their movements between different museum contexts in an historical perspective. The study forms a part of my contribution to the research program “The sociomaterial dynamics of museum collections”; which includes three Swedish national museums in Stockholm: the Nordiska Museet (cultural history); the National Historical Museum (history/archaeology) and the Museum of Ethnography (third/fourth/non-Western world). My part of the project involves the Sami collections in these museums. For this paper; I have chosen to focus on two categories of objects – drums and sieidis – and the possibilities of analysing their role as actors in social networks and how they contribute to construct and maintain power relations between people and institutions.
