Swedish traditions – old and new International influences Immigration has brought with it new customs and traditions that in time will become woven into the fabric of what we call Swedish society.

It is regulated by a Swedish law called the Reindeer Husbandry Act. Members of a sameby are entitled to engage in reindeer husbandry in this particular area, including building and setting up whatever facilities they need for their reindeer, in addition to fishing and hunting rights. Towards the end of the 19th century, many Sami permanently kept both farms and reindeer (mixed husbandry). The previous nomadic lifestyles of some, however, led the authorities to make some contentious decisions, the repercussions of which extended well into the 20th century.
