Concluding remarks: summing up
If more and proper rights are granted NOW, it saves the state from later court cases and big compensations. Proper rights include really extensive revitalisation programmes, even reversal, in the Saami case also for those who live outside the core Saami areas (in Finland, it is already some 70% of Saami ancestry children - and they have today no guaranteed right to Saami medium education, only Saami as a subject). It should be accepted that where the parents or grandparents have been forcibly assimilated and have therefore not been able to speak Saami to their children, Saami is still the children's mother tongue if they identify with it, even if they don't know the language. Therefore, people can demand that they have the right to mother tongue medium education in Saami.
