In pictures: The Seto people
A border people

On either side of a disputed and un-ratified border between Estonia and Russia lies the land of the Seto people, Setomaa (meaning "Land of Wars" in the Seto language).

A separate ethnic group to the rest of Estonia, the Setos have their own unique traditions of singing runic verse and worshipping pagan deities and are one of the last remaining traditional folk cultures in Europe.

Current events have only increased the political uncertainty they face.
