Picture of our family by Tytti Bräysy @tyttitupuna
I´m Anne. Mother of three. Reindeer herder and Nature guide by profession. I love fishing and exploring wildlife. I love to work with animals. In the picture I´m at our reindeer herd. I do old traditional handcraft from pine tree roots and fish leather and reindeer leather. I make also nature inspired jewelry @karhukoru that are sold in Siida museum and at our home. I´m interested in how people survived in the arctic conditions way back.
We work together in three generations.
Our home language is Inari Sámi. Only 300 people speak it.
My husband name is Janne. He is a professional reindeer herder. He is a hunter and a fisher. He can fix everything. In the picture Janne is at our reindeer herd feeding the reindeer with some hay. This is how we can keep our reindeer in a certain area winter time. Janne´s family has been herding reindeer for over 400 years. We are proud to keep it going with our three children. Well-being of our reindeer is our top priority.
We aim to self-sufficiency in some topic´s. Our home has an ecological heating system. Our home is built from local wood. We hunt and fish and gather berries and other wild food. We have an arctic organic veggie garden. We also have a greenhouse to grow organic tomatoes, chili, pepper, herbs and cucumber summertime.
We don't use chemicals but nature based cleaning products. We recycle plastic, cardboard, paper, metal, glass, bottles, compost, batteries. We try to do our best for the environment. If you visit us you will support a local small family business.
