HALTIA

Finnish Multi-talented Spirits

The Lesser Gods

In other words, Finnish spirits.

The word Haltia can be translated ‘Fairy’, but we think it’s more accurate to call them gnomes, or even brownies.

Small, human-like, but mostly unseen and mysterious, there are many of them and each has its own particular job. The domestic HALTIA are known as KOTIHALTIA, and very useful they are.

Others include METSANHALTIA (forest spirits), MAAN-HALTIAT (land spirits), VEDEN-HALTIAT (water spirits) and ILMAN-HALTIAT (air spirits).
