“Underneath Us” is a project focused on Sámi people testimonies and its main objective is to break stereotypes by presenting what it means to be a Sámi person today and how discrimination can still be a remaining topic in the Finland and other Scandinavian countries where Sámi people live.

 

Anni Guttorm and Päivi Magga, Sámi women, shared how they live their everyday lives. They also tell that even they were born in a develop country, there are still existing stereotypes, social stigmas and prejudices based on the incredible lack of information about them in Finnish education. Additionally, they show us what their identity is build on by inviting us to be part of their daily traditions from the past proving that being a Sámi person is much more than just wearing traditional clothes: Sámi can be found underneath, inside their hearts.
