Seitajärvi (seita: a Sami sacred place + järvi: lake) was a community located in the Savukoski municipality of Finland.

In 1940 the Seitajärvi community included five farming and reindeer enterprises.

On July 7, 1944 Seitajärvi suffered a devastating attack by Soviet partisans.

Many families of this community relocated to Kittilä in northwest Lapland and nowadays the Seitajärvi people have no standing settlements.
