Juksakka by fairychamber
Juksakka
Juksakka is a Sami goddess. She has two sisters; Sarakka and Madderakka.

All three goddesses are related to childbirth and protecting children.
Juksakka is a goddess who watches over the development of the child from conception through early childhood.

Juksakka is also known as a "bow woman"
She is also goddess of hunting and wilderness. 
She has similarities to the Greek goddess Artemis but do not mix the two as a Sami goddess
her existence and context are related to Sami culture and the folklore of Lapland and northern nature.
