LAPP, LAPLANDER, SAMI OR LAPPISH?
The lappish people also called Same, Sami, Saami people, a people divided between four countries Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia.”Lapp” means a patch of cloth for mending, thus the name suggests that the Sami are wearing patched clothes, a derogatory term and one that needs to be replaced.
The word ”Laplander” is also problematic since that could mean any person who lives within this region, also those that are non native. Finally there’s a part of the Sami population who always have lived outside the region of ”Lapland” such as the Sami’s in Sweden’s Jemtland and Härjedalen.
