Sarah Palin and the Vikings?-Truth!

Summary of the eRumor:  
Photograph of Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin with Vikings.
The Truth:  
 
The picture is from when Palin spoke at the annual "Little Norway Festival" in Petersburg, Alaska in 2007.
 
It has taken place every year since 1958 to celebrate the area's "unique Norwegian heritage."

One of the features of the festival is that celebrants dress in Norwegian folk costumes, called "bunader" and that is who Palin is posing with in the picture.
