Sizing guide
S mi culture has undergone powerful changes recently. Traditions have been integrated with contemporary influences and perspectives. New kinds of S mi participation and activism have evolved including innovative politics, informative media, expressive art and literature. Accommodating internal and external changes is nothing novel to the S mi. The dialogue between what is traditional and what is modern is a natural part of their development towards the maintenance of S mi cultural distinctness.
