Young Shaman Finland


Yes, I still live. A teenage SatW Finland in (my attempt at) a traditional Suomenusko shaman outfit. Sources I have found come from paintings of the Kalevala, modern Sami shamanism (which I have read may share similarities to previous Finnish shamanism), and what little I could find on Suomenusko in English, since I have yet to learn Finnish. Please, if you feel that I have misinterpreted any information, have gotten something wrong,or that there is something that can be improved upon, let me know down in the comments. I would love to learn more anyway! If I did okay, but you know more information on suomenusko and are fluent in Finnish, feel free to leave information regardless! Thank you and I hope you enjoy this little drawing!

Goodness. I don't know anything about old Finnish culture, but that drawing is just amazing!

Also, @aurinkolasit @impkat I might not be as fascinated by the topic as you are, but I am very curious and if you guys can advice me an interesting source in English for a real noob, then please tell me. (I'm okay with google translate plus proper dictionary-ing myself through Swedish as well)

To be honest, I’m a bit bugged by the fact that a supposedly Finnish shaman uses a gievrie, which is South Sámi…
