Thread Name: Tune Add: The tops in National Anthems
Subject: RE: Tune Add: The tops in National Anthems
Once heard a beautiful, poignant song that was characterised as the "national anthem" of the Saami people. Anyone familiar with it?

Speaking of national anthems of "minorities" - "My Love is But a Lassie Yet" (the tune) seems to be the unofficial national anthem of the Inuit, at least of the eastern Arctic, just as "The Red River Jig" could be considered the national anthem of the Native people collectively of western Canada.

Any other "unofficial national anthems"? "Auld Lang Syne" has been mentioned as the world's national anthem ...
