Svenska Sameland
Sameland även kallat Lappland, är namnet på det område där samerna traditionellt är bosatta. Sameland sträcker sig över hela Nordkalotten, inkluderande delar av Sverige, Norge, Finland och Kolahalvön i Ryssland. Efter Sovjetunionens fall har samarbetet över den ryska gränsen ökat och nationsgränser har blivit mindre och mindre viktiga. Området är totalt ungefär 388 350 km² stort och har en befolkning på totalt 2 317 159 invånare, varav 70 000 är samer.

English Sápmi - Sápmi
Sápmi is the name of the cultural region traditionally inhabited by the Sami people. Sápmi is located in Northern Europe and includes the northern parts of Fennoscandia. It spans over four countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. With the fall of the Soviet Union and increasing internationalization, co-operation across borders is becoming more important and existing county and national borders less important both for the Sami aboriginal population and the non-Sami population. The majority of the population of this region is non-Sami. The Sami make up only a small minority.

Notes and references

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
