>The bear was considered sacred. The pagan Finns believed that it came from the sky and had the ability to reincarnate[citation needed]. A celebration known as Karhunpeijaiset (literally "celebration of the bear") was practised whenever a bear was killed and eaten. The ceremony was designed to convince the bear's soul to reincarnate back into the forest. After the flesh was eaten, the bones were buried, and the skull placed on a venerated pine tree known as kallohonka

>Bear was also thought never to harm a female, possibly
because of the mythic marriage between a woman and a bear who were the founding ancestors of the
bear clan. This story is known amongst many Finno-Ugric tribes

Also from the same entry:

>the bear's name was almost forbidden to say, so many euphemisms were developed.

Some traditions seem to live on to this day even if we don't consiously realize it
