Record #41623:

The hunter, the game and the Unseen Powers. Lappish and Finnish bear rites / Carl-Martin Edsman.

Title: The hunter, the game and the Unseen Powers. Lappish and Finnish bear rites / Carl-Martin Edsman.
Author(s): Edsman, Carl-Martin.
Date: 1965.
Publisher: Luleå: Norrbottens Museum
In: Hunting and fishing. Nordic symposium on life in a traditional hunting and fishing milieu in prehistoric times and up to the present day. (1965.),
Abstract: Article describes setting of hunting rites in northern Europe, Asia and America as part of concept of nature as "in God's hand". Lutheran clergy of 17th Cent. and modern missionaries give this idea due weight, often ignored by secular anthropologists. Sources of information are almost all oral. Legends from Inuit are recounted. Corresponding Finnish runes on bear hunting, Kalevala and Swedish folk tradition describe suitable rites to placate powers ruling over game. Bear soup needs special lies to protect its consumers, and women must keep away. Bear's bones are ceremonially buried.
