@cohkka Not a big deal, perhaps, but I'm not aware of the Sami ever being supplanted in any of their traditional lands. It is true, however, that they were thoroughly assimilated in many places through intermarriage with Scandinavians and/or Finns over several generations, to the point that their descendants today may be unaware of their Sami ancestry. Cultural assimilation and "shaming" in the 19th and 20th century only added to this, of course. They (or their genes, if you prefer) are still there, though, there was no ethnic cleansing in the modern sense.
