One of the oldest living cultures in Norway, and possibly the world, is that of the Sami people, who have been surviving in the harsh climes of Sami Land (or Lapland) for thousands of years. For a long time, the Sami were an oppressed people. Today, the Sami stand strong with their own independence day, flag and parliament. The name 'Lapp' means cloth or patch, and is considered outdated, and derogative. The name 'Sami' is the race's own and preferred name for themselves.
