Daylight Multimedia Podcast - Erika Larsen: Sámi

The Sámi, which translates to ‘The People’ are an indigenous group living in the Arctic Circle region of northern Scandinavia. It is the largest area in the world with an ancestral way of life based on the seasonal migrations of the animals. The Sámi are by tradition reindeer herders and live a nomadic lifestyle based on the reindeer migration.  By possessing a livelihood that is dependent on their surroundings, the Sami are acutely aware of the changes in nature.  Erika Larsen has spent over three years documenting their symbiotic relationship with the environment.
