Sami costumes in Finnmark

In the Norwegian Finnmark "the classic costumes" still are modern:
The everyday wear of the Samis in Northern Finland, Sweden and Norway is similar to other europeans, but often the classic style full dress is used: Here you can see a little girl with her grandfather outside the new church in Karasjok just after Easter service.

Most of the more than hundred participants were using a similar dress.

The Sami-dresses used in different parts of the Sami-country looks like these, but the use of the ribbons and head-wear might vary.

In Karasjok you will find the Norse Sami-parliament.
