Europe’s very own Alaska, Lapland (also called Sápmi) is a unique blend of untamed nature and cultural heritage. It is here that old growth forests, mountains, glaciers, rivers and wetlands have provided a home for the indigenous Sami community for millennia. And it is here that large-scale reindeer migration and river systems have shaped the ecology and the landscape, as well as people’s lives. Yet economic pressures and unsustainable land management have recently forced many Sami to abandon the land, as the income from reindeer herding has dwindled, rivers have been dammed and forests cut down.
Now a new initiative aims to restore their traditional ties with the land.
