i live in southern finland so i’m not 100% how things are done in lapland and if it’s the sami who usually raise reindeer. but i do know that every self-respecting finn owns their own knife aka puukko :D even i had one but i lost it years ago.
Maybe I have falling for the stereotype, maybe there are Finns/Swedes also involved with the reindeer business
Are you a “real” finn if you if your knife? :p
Also, you might like this movie, “Sint”, it’s Dutch, a bit different but they are trying to follow the Hollywood format, some holes in it for sure but kind of fun for the holidays. Plus, the guy is cute
i’m pretty sure they’re sami, yeah. they speak finnish in the movie, but i got the impression that they are sami. don’t they even mention that the ancient sami people put santa inside korvatunturi?
Yeah, it was the Sami that trapped Santa. I just assumed that anyone dealing with reindeer is Sami, that’s how it is here so. I also think a lot of Sami speak Swedish/Finnish, I doubt they are all speaking Sami all the time at least
