Storr Junkare

Storr Junkare, in Lapp mythology, is the god of hunting and fishing, who was highly venerated because those pursuits afforded the principal means of livelihood to the peoples of the frozen North. Storr was probably the only divinity whose worship was in any degree general; that of other gods being restricted, in each case, to a single family or clan, as a rule. Rough stones were brought into something of artistic shape, and were erected to serve as images of this God. When sacrifices were offered to him, it was customary to smear the image with the blood.
