Poskad Lapp Costumes from Finnmark


The Sami people lives in the northern parts of four countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia (the Kola Peninsula). In earlier times Sápmi (the land of the Sami) covered a much bigger part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, probably also more of northern Russia.


In this north-western part of Europe the Sami people is the indigenous population, as far as we know today. Many scientists believe that this ethnic group descends from the Komsa people, who lived along the northern coast as far back as eight to ten thousand years ago.


In earlier times the Sami were called Lapps (as in Lapland and Lappmarken) and Finns (as in Finnmark and Finland). During the centuries when they were suppressed by their majority neighbours the names 'Lapp' and 'Finn' acquired a disparaging value (in English the word 'Finn' means an inhabitant of Finland). In the last decades Sami (or same in Norwegian and Swedish),
derived from their own word sámit, has replaced the older names.

Untuk pengetahuan, poskad lama ini rupa-rupanya masih bernilai kerana apabila dirujuk kepada cardcow.com harganya ialah $14.95...
