@Bloodblender the Sami/Saami were forced-sterilized (aka genocide) in Sweden. they weren't the only group targeted, of course. but this Eugenic sterilization of Sami/Saami people continued until 1980s, so fairly recently. (other groups to be force-sterilized were people with disabilities and until 2011 transpeople). it doesn't particularly matter who was first in a particular region, the similarities between Scandinavia and the United States is the methods used to target Native Americans and the Sami/Saami to oppress them (such as banning the use of their language, moving them,etc), and commit genocide. some of this similar behavior happened in Finland, too, so not like Sweden is only to blame, but there you go.
