Joukahainen is a character in the Kalevala, the Finnish epic poem of fifty parts. He is the rival of the main character, Väinämöinen. After losing a singing contest, he pledges his sister Aino to Väinämöinen, but she drowns herself rather than marry him. Joukahainen, still envious of Väinämöinen, then shoots the stag of his rival from under him, plunging him into the waters of Pohjola.

Viking Age Finland - By studying the archaeological records, fabric remains, and descriptions recorded in books such as Kalevala, weavers designed the clothing, using modern yarns that were available to them.

Aino - by Russian artist Mechev MM. Aino - in the Finnish national epic Kalevala, was the sister of Joukahainen, who promised Aino's "hands & feet" in marriage to Väinämöinen if he would save him from drowning in a swamp. Aino's mother was pleased at the idea of her daughter marrying such a famous person, but Aino did not want to marry an old man. Rather than submit she drowned herself (or ended up as a nix). However, she returned to taunt the grieving Väinämöinen as a salmon.

The origins of iron.  The three daughters of Ukko spread from swollen udder milk white, red and black. And from that milk poured on the Earth (so says the old  Väinämöinen  in runo IX of  Kalevala) produces various types of iron.   Joseph Alanen.
