The Finno-Ugric peoples or Finno-Ugrian peoples, are the peoples of Northeast Europe, North Asia and the Carpathian Basin who speak Finno-Ugric languages – that is, speakers of languages of the Uralic family apart from the Samoyeds. Many Finno-Ugric peoples are surrounded by speakers of languages belonging to other language families.

The proto-Uralic languages and the early Uralic people originated somewhere in eastern Siberia or possibly Northeast Asia. They were closely related to other Siberian and East Asian but also Inuit people. They migrated into central Siberia and then about 3,000 years ago started to migrate to the Baltic region in northeastern Europe. They assimilated many Paleo-European tribes. Genetic and anthropologic studies show that the early Uralic people were similar to various Siberian and East Asian people (Mongoloids).
Several linguists and geneticists suggest that the Uralic languages are related to various Siberian languages and possibly also some languages of northern Native Americans. A proposed family is named Uralo-Siberian. It includes Uralic, Yukaghir, Eskimo–Aleut (Inuit), possibly Nivkh and Chukotko-Kamchatkan.

Pre-Finno-Ugric substrate refers to substratum loanwords from unidentified non-Indo-European and non-Uralic languages that are found in various Finno-Ugric languages, most notably Sami. The presence of Pre-Finno-Ugric substrate in Sami languages was demonstrated by Ante Aikio. Janne Saarikivi points out that similar substrate words are present in Finnic languages as well, but in much smaller numbers. The number of substrate words in Sámi likely exceeds one thousand words. Borrowing to...
Some toponyms in Finland appear to be of non Uralic origin, for example a word "koita" regularly appears on narrow and long hydronyms, thus it is probably the continuation of the native word for "long, narrow". Endings such as ri regularly appear on rivers, thus it is probably the pre-Uralic word for a river. Many other toponyms in Finland seem to come from a substrate language or from many substrate languages, these are Saimaa, Imatra, Päijänne and Inari. There are also toponyms from a ...
Because there are irregularities in Saami substrate words, they might have been borrowed from distinct, but related languages. In the west, the substrate languages probably had an s-type sibilant which corresponds to an š-type sibilant in the East. Because we only have fragments of Lakelandic Saami which were preserved in Finnish place-names and dialectal vocabulary, the features of Palaeo-Lakelandic substrate in Lakeland Saami cannot be studied. Many place-names in Finland come from Saami ...
According to this theory, Finno-Ugric speakers spread north as the Ice age ended. They populated central and northern Europe, while Basque speakers populated western Europe. As agriculture spread from the southeast into Europe, the Indo-European languages spread among the hunter-gatherers.
For the Samis Foundation, see Sam Israel. The Sámi people ( / ˈsɑːmi /; also spelled Sami or Saami) are an indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula within the Murmansk Oblast of Russia.
Proto-Uralic is the reconstructed language ancestral to the Uralic language family. The language was originally spoken in a small area in about 7000–2000 BCE (estimates vary), and expanded to give differentiated protolanguages. The location of the area or Urheimat is not known, and various strongly differing proposals have been advocated, but ...
Looking at this grouping it would seem Finno-Ugric peoples are indigenous Europeans with some Asian DNA and others are Asians with some European DNA: Haplogroup N Y-DNA originated in East Asia and is found in Scandinavia Haplogroup N-M231 - Wikipedia
