The Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos is a local meeting place, home of the Sámi parliament of Finland and the cultural hub of the Sámi in Lapland. The Sámediggi, or Sámi Parliament, is the self-governed body of the Sámi, legislated at the beginning of 1996. Its main purpose is to plan and implement the cultural self-government guaranteed to the Sámi as an indigenous people. Sajos, the cultural centre, also houses an education centre, a cafe and the Duodji Shop, the association of Sámi handicrafts in Finland. The boutique provides only authentic Sámi handicrafts, literature and music. In the gallery shop, all handicrafts are individual and offer a true reflection of their makers. Something genuine to bring home after a visit full of information on the tradition, culture and heritage of the indigenous people of Finland.
