The Sami
Much untruthfulness has been said and written about the Sami. Having only seen their dirty homes at a distance, travelers have ascribed the Sami with vices which they in general are innocent of. It is enough to be with them for a while, chat with them, and observe them in different wakes of live to be touched by how friendly, unpretentious and honest they are in nature.
