The Finno-Permic, Lapps, and Samoyeds: a Historical Overview of their
The Arctic people of the North - the Finno-Permians, Lapps and their distant
relatives, the Samoyeds could not remain in their ancestral areas hunting
and fishing indefinately. They apparently were already on the move by 400
BC. Their movements allowed the land to recover. These people were
used to hunting and fishing for survival, which tied them to these resources.
Some went West, others turned East, each searching for greener pastures,
better fishing. They would have turned South too, but the hunting and fishing
ended at the treeline's Southern edge, which limited their movements in
that direction. Some of the Finno-Permic tribes apparently adopted a mixed
life-style for survival.
