This study consists of volume two of T. I. Itkonen's
classic work on traditional Saami society in Finland. (The first volume of this monograph
is also in this database). The two volumes together, translated into English from the
original Finnish, provide a detailed study of Saami material culture from the early
sixteenth to the mid-twentieth century. The present document presents an abundance of data
on the food quest (particularly hunting and fowling), reindeer herding and pastoral
activities, seasonal migrations, dogs, cattle breeding, trade, agriculture, mythology and
religion, concepts of life and death, ideas about nature and man, reproduction, child care,
marriage, etiquette, games and pastimes, diseases and curing practices, units of
