On the land of this region, Sápmi, the Sámi people have lived since time immemorial, respectfully harvesting from nature by fishing, farming, hunting and following reindeer, amongst other activities. We pay respect to the deep knowledge of land and water, as well as to the spiritual principles and world perspectives that have and continue to inspire Sápmi across all of its communities.
