Abstract
Regular exercise is widely recognized as an important behavior in disease prevention and health promotion, and the lack of motivation to exercise has been identified as a major barrier to its continued practice. The study focuses on the development and initial psychometric evaluation of a new instrument to measure self-determination in exercise behavior, a motivational construct derived from Deci & Ryan's Self-Determination Theory. The construct is defined as an autonomy orientation towards regular exercise behavior or the perception of regular exercise as congruent with one's needs and feelings and free from internal or external control. It was operationalized in a self-report summated Liker-type rating scale of 58 items. A bilingual development of an Icelandic and English form of the measure has been emphasized. Item generation and psychometric testing plan were guided by Gable's (1986) approach to instrument development and Nunally's (1978) Psychometric Theory. The exploratory phase included face validation and content validation by expert judges as well as pre-testing on small American and Icelandic samples. The psychometric study was done on a sample of Icelandic adults (N=260) and included reliability testing and construct validation using factor analysis, "the known groups approach,? and convergent validation with Cox's Health Self-Determinism Index. Findings support the new measure as an internally consistent (Alpha=90) and valid measure of exercise motivation which may be useful in evaluating the effectiveness of health education directed at positively influencing exercise motivation.

Abstract
For many years, indigenous peoples, their rights, culture and identity have been neglected. This depressing statement also refers to the Sami who reside in the Arctic. This paper presents the understanding of the term “indigenous peoples” and a number of their rights, including the right to selfdetermination. Their implementation is necessary for human security as they empower indigenous peoples to make decisions in matters that affect them. The author examines the concept of human security and the threats to this security in the Arctic in particular to the Sami as well as the most important provisions in international legal documents regarding the rights of indigenous peoples which include references to human security.
