The organization Saminourra reported how the effects of climate change affect the Lapps’ daily lives, especially reindeer herding, a fundamental activity in the culture of the Sami, an Arctic Indigenous people of about 80,000 persons who are spread across Norway, Russia, Finland, and Sweden.
“We are in a serious climate crisis and the Indigenous people are the ones who are first and most affected,” Thunberg stressed.
“They lead the fight and are the ones who resist the most. They are the front line. We support them.”
