Abstract: "The local society the Samy-people have developed their own roots for management of resources they use. That means they have another system which they also use in practice. In the last 20 years we have had an enormous mechanical development -- also in reindeer herding. We have now got snow-vehicles, helicopters, and motorcycles into this business and the economical aspect has got much more influence on the management than what we have before. In northern Norway we see this problem in overgrazing on lichen, and we have also seen it in fisheries. Too many fight about limited resources because of short economical gain. In the long run this is not a good strategy."
