How climate change is killing an Arctic culture

​As the arctic warms four times faster than the global average, Europe’s only indigenous population is under threat.

For centuries, the Sámi people have herded reindeer throughout northern Europe, formerly known as Lapland. Now, warmer winters are turning the snow the reindeer dig through to find food into ice, blocking their only source of sustenance. In the last two years, 10,000 reindeer died. If this winter is bad, herders fear up to half the herd could be lost.
