Sami religion today. Sami is Christian too. Earlier the sami belived in Gods and Godesses who lived in the nature. But then the other people in Norway, Sweden and Finland wanted them to be Christian. The sami were forced to be Christian and if they didn’t want they were killed. But the old sami still tells stories about the ”stalloen” and the ”noaiden”.
Old sami religion. We say that the sami is the native people in Norway, Sweden and Finland. And that they live in harmony with nature. They meant that nature gave them all the things they need to live. The Gods were the natural forces. All the anlmals had a holy spirit. The rocks, mountains and the lakes had spirits too, and they belived that it was good help for the people to offer things to them.
”Sajve” The sami believed in the Sajve. Sajve lives under the ground. They were creatures who lived in the mountains exactly the same way as the sami. The difference was that the Sajve were small and happy. Some people could communicate with them and that was a good thing to manage. Sajve
