Sami National Day celebrated

Thursday February 6th is celebrated as the indigenous Sami People's Day in Norway and other Scandinavian countries.

The day is official flag day in Norway, and the Sami flag is flown on all official buildings. 

The Nordic Sami Council decided in 1992 to celebrate a joint Sami National Day, and the day was first celebrated on February 6th 1993.

The Sami are Norway’s indigenous people. The Sami people are sometimes referred to as Lapps, but prefer to be called Samis. Their culture has been developing in Northern Scandinavia since the arrival of the first people 11,000 years ago. The Sami were at one with nature, and lived in tents (lavvo) and turf huts whilst they followed the reindeer.
