Top best answers to the question «Where do the sami live in sweden»

The Sámi people (/ˈsɑːmi/ SAH-mee; also spelled Sami or Saami) are an indigenous Finno-Ugric-speaking people inhabiting the region of Sápmi (formerly known as Lapland), which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and of the Murmansk Oblast, Russia, most of the Kola Peninsula in particular.

Although many in the Swedish Sámi community live in Swedish Lapland – a vast area stretching from Sorsele and Skellefteå in the northern province of Västerbotten, right to the country's northernmost tip – Sámi enclaves are also found in the county of Dalarna in central Sweden.
