The question of who is a Sami is difficult to answer as most people have a mixed ethnic background. One way of determining ethnicity is to make it a question of sentiment and self-ascription; those who feel or claim that they are Sami, are Sami. In Norway one has to be able to document a grandfather or grandmother to be qualified for the Sami Parliament elections, while in Sweden a person should have spoken Sami language at home, or think about themselves as being a Sami.
