As TOH explores a topic related to the Sámi people of Northern Europe, you can explore more about them through a variety of websites;  art lovers can encounter the fifth Artist of the Day from the Nordic Art video conversation on October 6; kids will enjoy story time from the National Nordic Museum in Seattle; and cooks get a recipe for finnbiff as demonstrated at the TOH
