Welcome To Sápmi is a short documentary about the indigenous people of Scandinavia, the Sami people, and how they have lived through racism and discrimination by Norway. Through the process of Norwegianization, the Sami people have suffered for over 120 years. We discover how a Sami elder, a shaman, and two kindergarten teachers bring their lost culture and identity back to life.
