Sami Herder, Scandinavia

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos Johan Kuhmunen, with his dog Cammu, lives in Sweden, but the summertime range for his family's herd crosses into Norway. The Sami tradition of learning from the elders is an important part of reindeer herding, and knowledge is passed down from generation to generation and not learned in books. See more pictures from the November 2011 feature story, "Sami: The People Who Walk With Reindeer."
