Ságat is a Sámi newspaper written in Norwegian that is published in the county of Finnmark in Norway.

History and profileEdit

Ságat was founded in Vadsø in 1957[1] and moved to Lakselv in 1981, where it still is based today. The editor since 1978 has been Geir Wulff. The paper was published five days per week.[2] Later it became a daily newspaper.[1]

Ságat had a circulation of 2,717 copies in 2007.[3] Although the original idea of the newspaper was that it should have articles written in both Sámi and Norwegian, today it uses Norwegian almost exclusively in its articles.
