Description

Máze/Masi is located halfway between Alta and Kautokeino along highway 93. The name is derived from Mázejohkka, the winding river. With the planned construction of a dam and development of the Alta/Kautokeino watercourse in 1970, the village would have been submerged with the planned water level 2 metres higher than the church spire. The village is now home to around 350 people, 98% of whom are Sami, of which 50% work with the reindeer.
