Sami~ indigenous people of Scandinavia

There are lots of other great pages telling about Sami people, but this is pretty good one.

Samis are "people without country" living in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Kola Peninsula in Russia. Traditionally they have been living of reindeer hearding, but today tourism is a big part of not just Samis life, but all citizens living beyond the Arctic circle. Sami people have strong cultural history and they are famous of their stunishing handicrafts... using reindeer leather, hide, antler... and of course, they are known of their "stuorra nibas", leuku knives...
