The Fritt Ord Foundation has published the list of grants for less than NOK 100 000 that were awarded in December 2018.

Approximately 90 grants are on the list. For example, Orkana Publishing House received support for two book publications that shed light on the history of the minorities in the north. NOK 30 000 was granted for the publication of the texts written by Lars Hætta and Anders Bær, the oldest original literature in the North Sámi language, and NOK 75 000 was earmarked for the translation to Norwegian and publication of the book "The Life of Kvens near the Arctic Ocean" by Samuli Paulaharjus.

Grete Andrea Kvaal received NOK 40 000 for the exhibition "I know all my reindeer", which focuses on the role of women in reindeer husbandry. Kvaal has followed Karen Anna Logje Gaup (picture) through three decades.
