Prince Daniel's father Olle Westling inaugurated yesterday the exhibition "Finnskogar - Forest Finns" at the National Museum of Finland in Helsinki in Finland. The YLE News mentioned it at their news story about Victoria's and king's visits to Finland. There was also a media event on yesterday morning at 11.00 at the National Museum. Olle represents the Finnskogsriket Society.
Olle said to Iltasanomat, that his visit to Finland has nothing to do with the visits of the king and crown princess. He told that the exhibition tells about finnish people who moved to the uninhabited areas to Sweden's countryside in late 16th century and in 17th century and started slash and burn farming. His ancestors from his mother's side came from Rautalammi to Sweden in the 17th century. Olle said also that Ockelbo is near the nature, so they understand very well how important the nature and forest are to the people.
