The indigenous Sami people of Scandinavia and European Russia have undergone incredible changes in recent years. The only European ethnic group to be recognized as an aboriginal people, the Sami have been divided by national borders for centuries. They are economically and culturally diverse and speak several dialects of the Sami language. The common perception of the Sami as reindeer herders is increasingly inaccurate as they enter the global system as writers, artists, and political activists. This volume is perhaps the only one written from the Sami perspective that is available in English. Beautifully illustrated with color photos, historic maps, and illustrations, The Sami People situates the Sami within a modern context with a rich appreciation of their ancient history. Color photographs juxtapose "traditional" Sami dress and lifestyle with modern art and handicrafts demonstrating how the Sami have interpreted twenty-first century life. A unique resource on the Sami people, this volume is a significant contribution to the literature on circumpolar peoples. An excellent choice for instructors in anthropology, history, and sociology, The Sami People will also appeal to casual readers who are interested in Scandinavia, Native peoples, and European history.
