In the last quarter of the twentieth century, the Saami, a numerically small, indigenous minority, accounted for less than one percent of the combined population of Norway, Sweden, and Finland. Finnmark County, Norway, is inhabited mostly by Saami. The majority of the Saami in Lappland have assimilated into the dominant culture and are commonly engaged in farming, fishing, and other sedentary occupations. Some ten percent of the Saami are reindeer-herding nomads, whereas in northern Norway the percentage is much higher. The Saami speak their own language, Saami, of the Finno-Ugric language group, and wear their traditional clothing, as does Issát in the Roseman portrait.
