Photographer Erika Larsen traveled to Scandinavia to document the lives of the Sami people. The Sami’s spread across northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Sami’s are best known for their Reindeer herding which you can see in the above photographs.

My Great Grandmother was Saami. What a wonderful and beautiful people they are.

Isn’t that white-haired girl beautiful? and in the most natural way, too. North American girls with their cloned made-up, tattooed, pierced bodies could sure learn a thing or two from her.

Mike, you too “could learn a thing or two from” those strong Sami men’s strength of character and survival skills”

Judy, &qnIo;tuability to control" — ack! I'm melting, I'm melting! :-) Tough concept for me to swallow but I know (in my head anyway) that I need to come to terms with it. After watching Robert struggle to dress (but insist on doing it), I appreciate his effort and persistence. It's also a reminder of what a crapshoot the gene pool is sometimes. I always love your comments and perspective, Judy. Thank you.
