I'm not familiar with the word "Sami". Does anyone care to explain? I'm not an englisch-native speaker...
The link didn't work for me, so instead i recommend listening to yoiks by Mari Boine, or -my fave- 'Irene' by Sofia Jannok.
Don't worry. English native speaker here and I'm not familiar with it either :). Apparently they're called Lapps or Laplanders in English. I've seen that word before, but I still had no idea what it was.
This is true, but please note that "Lapp" or "Laplander" is considered a pejorative, much like the majority of the Romani people doesn't like being called a "Gypsy". It's slightly better than "Gypsy" (and far better than worse terms, like "❤❤❤❤❤" or "❤❤❤❤❤❤"), but still pejorative.
Very old fashioned, and offensive to Sami, to use 'Lapplander' though. Fun fact, Renee Zellweger has Sami heritage.

The Sami to the Swedes are like the Native Americans to Americans. One of the oldest origional peoples of Europe.
