I love it. He's not only from a Native American tribe, but as soon as I saw his name, I knew he was from my tribe. He's a Suomilainen! His heritage also comes from Suomi. (Known in this country as Finland.)
My mother was Suomilainen and was fluent in Finnish (both spoken and written) until her dying day. She was active in the Suomi community and would provide translation for US Finns who had documents but could not read them.
It's fun to see these confluences of culture. A Native American with Northern European heritage. (Please don't say that Suomi is Scandinavian. The language roots are entirely different.)
for both Mikkanen and Humetewa. I want to see a Native American SCOTUS justice. And maybe a Suomilainen.
