In other words, Finnish spirits. The word Haltija can be translated ‘Fairy’, but it’s probably more accurate to think of them as elves, gnomes, or even brownie spirits.
Small, human-like, but mostly unseen and mysterious, there are many of them and each has its own particular job. The domestic HALTIJA are known as KOTIHALTIJA, and very useful they are.
Others include METSANHALTIJA (forest spirits), MAANHALTIJA (land spirits), VEDENHALTIJA (water spirits) and ILMAN-HALTIAT (air spirits).
