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.

Sami . Reindeer Calve -- or young -- whose antlers were taken for other use. Those are not "Costumes", the Sami are around Hunting, and need to be SEEN in bright colors.

(Living in a tent often!!)
