We work together as reindeer herders in three generations.
I´m Anne (second from left). Mother of three. Reindeer herder and Nature guide by profession. I love fishing and exploring wildlife. I love to work with animals. Angeli reindeer farm is my small business. If you visit us you can support a local small business. I love learning and doing old traditional Sámi handcraft from pine tree roots, fish and reindeer leather. I also make jewelry by beading small glass beads. My jewelry is sold in Sámi museum Siida and at our home. I keep up three Instagram accounts.
My husband name is Janne (first on left). He is a professional reindeer herder. He is a hunter and a fisher. He can fix everything. 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 speak Inari Sámi at our home. Only 300 people speak it. You can hear about our ways of keeping our language alive on our home visit or on our reindeer herd visit.
We pursue in self-sufficiency in many things. We hunt and fish. We collect berries and other wildfood. We have a arctic organic veggie garden and a greenhouse.
Thank you for supporting a small business.
