Here is my husband Janne. He is a reindeer herder. His family has been herding reindeers for centuries. Janne spends much time on mountains and forests taking care of our family reindeers. Reindeer herding is a way of life to him and it decides his year circle. He also likes to spend time with us always when it's possible. My husband is expert to build and fix almost everything. He speaks Northern Sami and Finnish.
Here are our children Jussa, Iina and Enni. They are lights of our life. They are full of life and always so eager to take part in reindeer herding works. I'm so happy when I have a possibility to let our children grow here in Lapland, living reindeer herder and Sami culture life. I'm happy to teach them to appreciate nature and living here in Inari.
