When Linneaus in his youth made his first excursion 1732 to the north of Sweden, he wrote a diary later published as Iter Lapponicum. He travelled in the summer months and met a lot of the native people in the north, the Sami. Linneaus’ point of view is perceptible for the reader, however, what did the objects of his research think of him. I will discuss in this paper of possible reactions from the Sami people in their encounter with Linneaus. What can we learn from his journey, today? The Sami history lack a great deal of information and documentation from the 18th century and Linneaus’ work is still important to complete that part of the history.
