Welcome to Sevettijärvi

Sevettijärvi is a major village of the Skolt Sámi, who resettled here when Finland was forced to cede the Petsamo area to the USSR in 1944. About 300 Skolt live in and around Sevettijärvi, which has a church (Orthodox, as the Skolt were evangelised by the Russians back in the 15th century), a shop and bar (Sevetin Baari), and a school, whose dozen-odd pupils are taught in the Skolt language.
