Sápmi 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. Most experts agree that the Sami culture can be traced back to around 2000 to 2500 years.
The Sami National Day (Northern Sami: Sámi álbmotbeaivi, Inari Sami: Säämi aalmugpeivi and Skolt Sami: Saa´mi meersažpei´vv) falls on February 6 as this date was when the first Sámi congress was held in 1917 in Trondheim, Norway.
