Documentation on Sami People and Forests in Finland
Reindeer from the Muotkatunturi Reindeer co-operative, are herded into a corral, Inari, Finland. Newborn fawns are tagged with their owners earmark in the summer months. Free grazing is the special feature of the Sami herding culture the Reindeers live and feed in their natural environment if this environment were to disappear then so would the Sami culture and the Reindeer's natural habitat. Meanwhile the Finnish state owned logging company Metsälitilus continues to deplete the traditional reindeer grazing areas. Some Reindeer herders have filed a lawsuit against the Finnish state with the UN human rights committee. The so called Angeli case is still pending in the UN.
