Nätti-Jussi and his club-foot

Juho Vihtori ”Nätti-Jussi” Nätti [Nätti-Jussi Pretty-John] (31 August 1890 Karstula - 4 August 1964 in Rovaniemi) was a Finnish forest laborer. The stories told by Pretty-Jussi made him a legendary figure, particularly in Lapland. Nätti was born in August 1890, in Karstula Central Finland, in a six-member family. His parents were log driver Dude Nätti and hostess Maija Nätti. He had three sisters. Nätti migrated with other members of his family to the Northern logging sites, and worked there most of his life. He was a well-known lumberjack who was known in Tervola, Pisalla, Muurola and the then market town of Rovaniemi.


Nätti was also a known clubfoot: his left leg foot had turned back. Nätti was paralyzed from the mid-1950s and was admitted to the Rautiosaari nursing home, part of the Department of the Rural Municipality of Rovaniemi. Nätti Salmi died in the forestry worker's home on August 4, 1964. He was buried in the cemetery of Rovaniemi in a common burial place.

Nätti got his own tomb marked in the Rovaniemi Viirinkangas cemetery in the summer of 2006; unveiling took place on 25 August 2006.
