Animistic beliefs are common among the reindeer people. Every tree, river, animal - all have their own spirit. Deer is no exception. Therefore, a deer is slaughtered following a certain ritual. First, the herder asks permission from the deer, then he kill hin with three sharp strokes so that the animal does not suffer. Absolutely every piece of the reindeer is used, including veins and hooves. Then, according to tradition, the skull and horns are left in sacred places or hung on top of a tree in the middle of the tundra. Buried this way, the spirit of the deer will be calm.
