Sápmi, the land of the Sami .. the area the Sami call their land Sápmi and it is quite a large area; about the size of Sweden, but spread out over Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russian Kola Peninsula. The Sami inhabited the region long before the concept of national borders existed. Most experts agree that the Sami culture can be traced back to around 2000 to 2500 years.

FolkCostume&Embroidery: Overview of Saami costume

Overview of Saami costume

Hello all, Today I will do an overview of the costumes of the Saami people. Previously they were called Lapps, but this is not what they call themselves, and they consider the term to be pejorative. The origin of the word Lapp is controverted, but it may be from Old Finnish/Estonian for a place far away. The Land of the Saami; Sápmi, Sábme, or Saemie, depending on the Dialect, is split between four nation-states, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. It consists of the northern part of the…

Finnmark: Laila

The Movie Laila is a silent epic (165 min, 1929, directed by George Schneevoigt) filmed entirely in Norway. It follows the story of Laila, daughter of Norwegian merchants who live amongst the Sami people in the northern part of the country. The Sami (in olden days called 'Lapps', and not by their choice) were nomadic reindeer herders. One day, when Laila is still an infant, her parents embark on a journey to a neighboring town for her baptism, to be there at the church when the priest makes…

Anki spelade…
