Sametinget - Saami Parliament of Sweden
The Sami Parliament of Sweden (Swedish: Sametinget, Northern Sami: Sámediggi) is the representative body for people of Sami heritage in Sweden. It acts as an institution of cultural autonomy for the indigenous Sami people. Sweden has taken action to recognise the Sami minority as an indigenous people and to distinguish them from other minorities, and to raise the Sami minority influence which comes into conflict with the European majority democracy system.
