At the 15. Nordic sami conference, held Helsinki in 1992, it was decided that February 6 is to be the sami national day. Teh date was chosen to mark the first meeting gathering samis from Norway and Sweden in Throndheim 6-9 February in Trondheim, in 1917.
February 6 we celebrate the sami national day together with the sami people in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia.
