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

History and profile

Ságat was founded in Vadsø in 1956 and moved to Lakselv in 1981, where it still is based today. The editor since 1978 has been Geir Wulff. The paper is published five days per week.[1]

Ságat had a circulation of 2,717 copies in 2007.[2] 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.
