Research Results For 'Leib-Olmai'

LEIB-OLMAI

In Lapp mythology, Leib-Olmai was the god of good luck in hunting. He lived in alder trees, but when hunters danced for him he appeared as a bear and gave them good luck - especially against bears. At festivals, people painted their faces in his honour with a brownish-red mixture made from ground-up alder bark and water.
