About 50% of those who speak Sami speak another language better
Many do not want to be Sami anymore

There's a lack of cooperation
– Book for children and youth.
– Webpages in other languages.
– Articles in newspapers and periodicals
– Fiction based on the school history
– Lectures in schools and other forums.
– The basis must be documentation and research. Need to see structure and general lines before one can begin writing.
