Hi Kim,

Here below is a fairly recent peer reviewed Journal paper describing the colonisation of the Sámi people.

If you have the Sámi family name you should be able to track down the person for you. Without the person's Sámi family name it is almost impossible. .

You can also visit the websites of the Swedish national authority “Sami Parliament” for more information. https://www.sametinget.se/lang/english ; and http://www.samer.se/english
