Arctic Cowboys: Hitch a Ride with Reindeer Herders in Finland

Hitch a ride with brothers Aarne and Lasse, two reindeer herders that help manage the last group of wild reindeer in Finland. This is a clip from Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, a documentary by filmmakers Jessica Oreck and Rachael Teel.

There’s a fascinating interview with Oreck and Teel here at National Geographic. You might also know their Mysteries of the Vernacular series for TEDEd, previously featured here.
