Episode Summary

Contrary to the enormous effort the Finnish government is putting into joining NATO, the rights of the Sámi people remain on the backburner.

The Sámi are the EU’s only recognized indigenous group. They have been fighting for years to preserve their heritage, culture and right to self-determination.
