Norwegians express great support for the fact that Sami culture is an important part of Norwegian culture. Still, few believe they know Sami culture and history well.

The opinion poll was carried out by Respons Analyze among a representative sample of Norwegians and was published in the newspaper VG on the Sami national day.

Only 23% of respondents say they have a good knowledge of Sami culture and history, while 81% completely or somewhat agree that Sami culture and history are important for Norwegian culture.

“I think it is very good that the Sami have a natural place in our society. It is very good that so many are interested in the Sami,” Sami Parliament President Silje Muotka from the Norwegian Sami National Association (NSR) said.
