Käddluhtt (form. Kandalaksha, Finn. Kantalahti, Russ. Кядлaхт, Kare. Kannanlakshi) is a Uralican town, located at the head of the northern arm of the White Sea, within Sapmi county.

The name Käddluhtt is Skolt Sami in origin, and was voted to be the new name of the town by the population upon annexation. The change was effective immediately upon the annexation, which was 11 November 2009.

Culture Edit

Despite the Saami name, only 5% of the population is ethnic Saami, although another 35% claim membership in the Eastern Saami tribe and speak one of the three Eastern Saami languages - predominantly Skolt with a decent number of Kildin speakers as well. Ethnicallly speaking, Russians, Finns, and Karelians make up the bulk of the population. There is also a decent population of speakers of Northern Saami.

There aren't many particularly large buildings in Käddluhtt, although there are a lot of country-style buildings in the town. Käddluhtt First Baptist Church is a relatively recent example of "Saami Country Architecture."
