Finnish Sami American
I've recently discovered that some of my ancestors who claimed to be Finnish are actually Sami. According to wikipedia, The Sami people are the Arctic indigenous people inhabiting Sapmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway. The Sami are Europe's northernmost and the Nordic countries' only officially indigenous people.

I really enjoyed browsing through your article! Actually it is for the first time I am hearing about Sami people! In Antarctica I have heard only about Eskimos! I would visit again to find such interesting pieces of information!
