Mt. Städjan, South Saamis and the Swedish (well*) National Anthem

On Idre Sameby etc


This is pasturage, grazing land within the reindeer herding area.
Today it is called the Southernmost sameby in the world: Idre sameby that is.

Carl von Linné, often called Carolus Linnaeus did visit this mountain, as well as Olof Rudbeck. Saami forest Saamis exercized reindeer herding already back in 1600s there, and the composer Richard Dybeck got inspired by it when he re-wrote the ancient folk tune Du Gamla Du Friska into the current kind of Anthem (* it hasnt ever been acknowledged as such).
