About Sápmi

We are one people divided among four nations.  The majority of us live in Norway, 40 000 – 50 000, in Sweden 20 000 - 35 000, in Finland 5 000 - 6 500 and in Russia about 2000.  These are estimated numbers since a census of the Sami people has not been made after World War II.

The land of the Sami, called Sápmi, stretches over northern Scandinavia all the way over to the Kola Peninsula.  We are an indigenous people who have developed a culture and ways of life that are directly connected to those areas of land and water that we have lived on and used since time immemorial.
