The Finno-Permic, Lapps, and Samoyeds: a Historical Overview of their Movements
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.
