The Sami Culture
In the far north of Europe, ancient sounds, unique craftwork traditions, and a particular language live side by side with modern technology. The Sámi culture is the oldest culture in large areas of Northern Norway and is currently experiencing a strong renaissance.
Around 2,600 Sámi people in Norway make their living from herding reindeer, and the majority of the region of Northern Norway is actually used for raising reindeer. Traditionally, most Sami people have supported themselves through fishing, livestock farming, and hunting, along the coast, on the fjords and alongside the large rivers farther inland.
The reindeer provide meat, milk and raw materials for clothes and tools. Reindeer herding is still as important today to the Sámi people, their livelihoods and their culture. This ensure that reindeer hides are an especially eco-friendly and sustainable product, since they are a By-Product from the consumption of Reindeer’s meat.
