The Sami people are the Arctic indigenous people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway. Photographer Erika Larsen has lived in one of their tribes for several years and that’s what she has to show you about everyday life of these people.

    Unique looking people. is it because of lack of light?

      Maybe, but I’m probably not the best to reply to that, because they just look like typical Nordic people to me. Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish. Just the outfits are different. They probably look like because the Sami populations are low; you have the founder effect. There is nobody new moving there, bringing different genes like you have in America, where everybody is a combo of French Irish German English.

      The girl with white hair and a plaid scarf… her hair looks just like mine, except I have dark eyebrows. Hers might not be that white; it looks like they used some Photoshop filters to make it look bleached.

    Never ask a herdsman how many reindeer he has, it’s considered an insulting, ignorant question- kinda like someone asking you what your personal income and wealth is. Another thing, if offered a share of bone marrow during a migration slaughter, be prepared for the runs if it’s your first time- the stuff is way too rich for the average digestion system, not that it’s fatal.

    Does “National Geographic” know you “borrowed” their photos?

  4. I want to walk with reindeer too. But I’m disappointed with the killing of the reindeer.
