Autumn of Reindeer

“The Sami people call these wise animal pieggânjune, wind nose, for their capability to predict the winds. A day before the winds turn, these magnificent nomadic know, and choose their direction towards tomorrow´s wind.”

Autumn chores begin in September for reindeer herders. Important equipment like all-terrain vehicles and trucks need to be maintained for daily herding duties. An intense herding sequence begins from mid-September and lasts till the end of October, when herders are with their reindeer daily in the forests.

Reindeer roundups are a daily task, where reindeer are gathered either with all-terrain vehicles or with a helicopter to corrals where reindeer markings take place. In Lapland, reindeer meat is a local delicacy and the dishes prepared of this kingly meat are a big part of local heritage. Miia´s reindeer farm is one of the local producers of quality reindeer meat, in a way that reindeer are offered a good life in the arctic wilderness areas before their last day at the round-up. Miia handles this part of the herding as an honourable task, and she is there with her reindeer when this last day comes.

Reindeer are kings of Lapland forests and when a reindeer takes the last breath of Lapland air, nothing of this majestic animal is wasted, yet every piece from tail till antlers are used; meat as delicacy, hide, bones and antlers as valuable utensil.
