The Self-Government Body of the Sámi

The Sámi Parliament is the supreme political body of the Sámi in Finland representing the Sámi in national and international connections. It is an independent legal entity of public law which, due to its self-governmental nature, is not a state authority or part of the public administration.

The Sámi in Finland

The Sámi are the only indigenous people within the European Union Area. The Sámi Area called Sápmi, that is, the nuclear region the Sámi inhabit within four countries, consists of northern parts of Finland, almost half of Sweden and Norway as well as parts of the Kola Peninsula in Russia.

The 21 members, and 4 deputies, are elected from among the Sámi every four years. The Plenum represents the supreme authority of the Sámi Parliament.

The Plenum appoints four committees for its electoral period. It also appoints the Sámi Language Council and the Electoral Committee, which has a shorter term of office than the other committees.
