One of the well-known traditional rune singers was Kaisa Vilhuinen. She lived in the Swedish part of 'Finnskogen' and died in 1941. Finnskogen ('Forest of the Finns') is an area of Norway situated in the county of Hedmark, named so because of immigration of Finnish people in the 17th century, the so-called Skogfinner/'Forest Finns'. The core area of Finnskogen lies in the eastern part of a small region known as Solør, on the border with Sweden. It consists of a forested belt of land.
