Frisians

 

a nation inhabiting The Netherlands (chiefly the province of Friesland) and the northwestern regions of the Federal Republic of Germany, including the North Frisian Islands and Helgoland. The Frisians number more than 400,000 (1978, estimate) and speak the Frisian language. Religious Frisians are Calvinists. The chief occupations of the Frisians are the raising of dairy livestock, the cultivation of crops, and fishing. Despite their closeness to the Dutch, the Frisians in the Netherlands retain their cultural identity.
