JABMIAKKA

Sámi Dead Goddess

Also known as Jabme-akka, Yambe-akka, Yambeakka, Jabmeakka, Jabmi-akka

The old woman of the dead

She is the housekeeper for departed souls. It is essential the dead are given a very good send-off and are nicely attired for the occasion. There should be much drinking of beer.
