1. Since the 17th century settlers in Lapland affected the age-old Lappish culture.

2. Since the 19th century the logging in Lapland brought down virgin forests, shattered the old cultural landscapes and has damaged reindeer grazing.

3. Since 1920´s the mining industry in Lapland deteriorated the earth and poisoned the waters.

4. In 1949 a water power plant in Lapland ran salmon of Kemijoki -river to extinction and changed the river as reservoir. 

5. Since 1960´s tourism has harnessed the fells of Lapland and made market trinkets part of the Lappish identity.
