Natural History Museum
10th and Constitution Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: Ground Floor, Southwest Corridor, near Baird Auditorium

On view are 39 photographs that document the lives of the Sami -- indigenous people living today in northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Kola Peninsula in Russia -- by indigenous photographer Fred Ivar Utsi Klemetsen. The images show the Sami at home with their families and at work herding their reindeer in traditional ways with a minimum of modern tools.
