Did you know that February 6 is The Sámi National Day?

Here are five interesting links about the Sámi and their culture. Most of the links are from this Twitter thread.

1. What is it like to be a young Sámi? (in Finnish)

2. A short video about the Sámi dress (in Sámi, with Finnish subtitles)

3. Different Sámi people tell the story of their Sámi clothing (in Finnish)

4. Saamelaistietoa opetukseen - Sámi links for educators (in Finnish)

5. Sano se saameksi - Say it in Sámi (in English, Finnish and Swedish)
