Googling for

    python "finite field"

reveals among other things the URLs

    http://www.hpcf.upr.edu/~humberto/software/fields/
    http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~emin/source_code/py_ecc/

I have not looked into those, but at least the first one seems to be in a 
very early state, since its version number is 0.1.1. The second one contains 
code for handling Reed-Solomon codes, which among other things includes 
arithmetic for finite fields.

Good luck!
