Beaivi (the Sun) is regarded as the central god in Sámi mythology.

Legends about the children of the Sun are common throughout Sápmi. A myth which tells that the Sámi were descended from the sons of the Sun became known through the epic yoik (song chant) called Beaivebártni soagnomátki Jiehtanasaid máilmmis.
