Meet the old Sami: Nils Somby.
He is living in Finnmark County where the big part of the Sami Nation in Norway is situated. There is app. 40 000 samis in Norway. Nils we met by the road along Porsangerfjorden from North Cape. For more of Nils Somby: Look him up at Google. He is probably the worlds most photographed Sami....
Here are some more of this people:
Wiki: The Sami people (also Sámi or Saami), traditionally known in English as Lapps or Laplanders, are an indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting the Arctic area of Sápmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway. The Sami are the only indigenous people of Scandinavia recognized and protected under the international conventions of indigenous peoples, and are hence the northernmost indigenous people of Europe.
