Hirvas Salmi, FINLAND. With flecks of mud and reindeer blood across her cheeks, Annirauna Triumf, 16, corrals her reindeer during an 11 hour day. She lives in Norway with her mother but comes to Finland for this "reindeer school" five times a year. This is a way that youth straddle both the modern day lives while retaining age-old traditions.
