There are Sami living in Lovozero (they are also known as “Lapps”). There are only about 88 thousand Sami in the world, nevertheless they unite their territories in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia into a country with a modest name “Great Lappland”. Sami are the only reindeer herders-Caucasians in the world. Before Soviet power their annual cycle was firmly connected with reindeer, they migrated together with herds. Before the 19th century the legislations of Russia and Finland contained a special permit for Sami to cross borders freely to collect reindeer gone to “the other side”.
