[6-5-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: What is the name of the people who have long inhabited northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland?

The given options are:

  • Dolgans
  • Sámi
  • Kereks

Correct Answer: Sámi

Info: Historically the Sámi have been known in English as Lapps or Laplanders, but these terms are regarded as offensive today. They’ve lived in regions of northern Scandinavia for thousands of years, including in the Rapa Valley, pictured here, in what is now Sweden’s Sarek National Park. The Sámi are a Finno-Ugric-speaking people inhabiting the region of Sápmi (formerly known as Lapland), which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and of the Murmansk Oblast, Russia, most of the Kola Peninsula in particular. Their traditional languages are the Sámi languages, which are classified as a branch of the Uralic language family. Traditionally, the Sámi have pursued a variety of livelihoods, including coastal fishing, fur trapping, and sheep herding. Their best-known means of livelihood is semi-nomadic reindeer herding.
