May I offer you some Jesus? 30 6, 5:19pm

Arrival of Jesus for the Sami took some time though. Up until 17th century, pagan practices and worshipping of indigenous deities was very common in Swedish Lappmarks. In Kola peninsula, it continued until the 19th century. Even today there probably are some Sami who make sacrifices for seita (nature shrines).
Laestadius (who was part Sami himself) made many Sami hardcore Christian, however.
