Abstract: Let G be a finite group of isometries acting on a complete Riemannian manifold. Suppose that B is a 0-dimensional boundary which is G-invariant. If the order of G divides the product of the cardinality of the orbit and the density of B at each point, then a G-invariant absolutely length minimizing integral current with boundary B can be constructed.
