People and Society of Norway

Norwegians have their roots in an old peasant culture and over the years many of the inhabitants have moved off the land and today the majority of Norwegians live in towns. The official language in Norway is Norwegian (Bokmal and Nynorsk).

The Sami here are the indigenous people of Norway with origins in the northern regions of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway, where they have lived for centuries by hunting, fishing and herding reindeer. A majority of Sami in Norway live in Finnmark. Many still pursue the nomadic life of their forefathers but the majority now live and work in much the same way as most Norwegians.
