Lieaibolmmai - God of the hunt, the god of adult men.

Lieaibolmmai or Leibolmai was the deity for hunting in Sami shamanism. He was the ruler of the wild animals in the forests, and the hunters made sacrifices in his honour to obtain good hunting. He lives in Alder trees and appears to humans in the form of a bear. During the bear festival, hunters sprinkled their faces with a mixture of alder bark and water to honor him.
