2. Culture And History In Greenland
An brief introduction to the culture and history of Greenland, presented by the tourist board
http://www.greenland-guide.gl/culture_history.htm
Greenland is blessed with a peaceable people that has never waged war with anyone, and people generally show great openness to visitors.
Travel Agencies: Topas Greenland Travel Nordic Adventure Airlines: Air Greenland
Excursions:
The population of Greenland is predominantly Inuit, a people bearing an affinity and solidarity with the Inuits of Canada, Alaska and Siberia. It is only 140 years since the last immigration from Canada took place. The Greenlandic people are few in number: 55,000 in an enormous country. Approx. 20 percent of the population was born outside Greenland. Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark, but since the introduction of Home Rule in 1979 Greenland has moved towards relative independence based on parliamentary democracy. Today fishing is the all-dominating trade and accounts for 95 percent of total exports, but in the hunter districts of the outer areas, the seal and whale catch is of great importance. It actually forms the stable existence for one fifth of the Greenlandic population. For millennia the philosophy has been to live at one with nature. The hunters live with nature and follow the natural seasons. In South Greenland ruins from the norse (viking) settlers 1,000 years ago are well preserved, including the ruins of the first Christian churches on the North America continent.

The northernmost part of the North American continent has seen some of the most fascinating human adaptations anywhere, extending back thousands of years. But learning about those adaptations through archaeological research in that vast region presents a number of unique challenges, including short field seasons, immense logistical problems, and excavation into permafrost (permanently frozen ground). Using text and images, these pages provide a glimpse of archaeological research in this region and its results focusing principally on the Canadian Arctic where I've done the majority of my research.

Culture of Greenland
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search The culture of Greenland has much in common with Inuit tradition, as the majority of people are descended from Inuit. Many people still go ice-fishing and there are annual dog-sled races in which everyone with a team participates. However, Greenland has now become somewhat of a tourist attraction. It holds contests to attract tourists such as dog racing, ice fishing, hiking, and cross country racing.

Greenland Culture
Probably some descendants of the present Inuit culture settled down in Greenland and named the island as Kalaalit Nunaat meaning land of the people. Therefore Greenland Culture has much in common with Inuit tradition. 75% of the populations of Greenland live in the towns. People usually hunt seal or other animals.
They built their own winter houses. Meat is one of the primary diets and blubber is used for fuel. Ice-fishing is quite common. Everyone with a team has to take part in the annual dog-sledge racing. Viking-Inuit is one of the major festivals and an integrated part of Greenland Culture
Eskimo Art continues to bear the sign of the intimate relation between form and function. The Drum Dance is among the major traditional dances of Greenland. Greenland music is a mixture of both the Inuit and Danish strands. The architecture includes both the traditional and the colonial style. The Handicraft products are very unique and utilitarian as well. Greenland Culture is a melting pot of various things of all Nordic cultures.

13. Greenland Culture
The World’s largest island has a tiny population. The 55,000 residents of Greenland are distributed throughout 120 localities around the coast 65 of these settlements
http://www.tunu.co.uk/Culture.html
All of this means that the East Greenlanders have their own Inuit dialect and very individual traditions and handicrafts. The primary occupations are hunting and fishing, sometimes using the traditional kayak. This is usually done on a subsistence basis - the East Coast has none of the large-scale commercial fisheries found elsewhere. Ancient practices of dividing up the catch amongst the community are still observed.
It is said that the Inuit keep one foot in the past. This is not derogatory, but reflects their awareness of their unique culture and heritage. Their ancient Drum Dance lives on and their music and storytelling is based on myths and sagas passed down by word of mouth through the generations. You will experience a warm and yet quiet hospitality in Tunu, will be touched by the Inuit family values, and moved by the sense of peace and timelessness in these communities at the edge of the World.

ADVERTISING INFORMATION Maniitsoq - Culture Midnight sun is a state of mind. Time makes no sense in this world. You can leave your watch in your suitcase. The day has no end.
The children will roller-skate down the streets in the middle of the night - with sun in their faces. Small motorboats chug out of the harbour. Groups of people sit on the rocks here and there, enjoying the never-ending sunlight. The midnight sun can be encountered north of the Polar Circle. In Ilulissat, for example, the sun never sets from May 25th to July 25th, and during that period "normal" calendar time is virtually non-operative. It is light around the clock. At what used to be night time the soft, warm light and the long shadows from the low-hanging sun bring the scenic backdrops into dreamlike and almost supernaturally beautiful relief. The northern lights are no less impressive. White, yellow, green and red they sweep across the dark sky in a state of eternal, rapid flux. Accumulate in intensity and culminate in scenery beyond imagination. Northern lights appear all year round in Greenland, but they can only be observed against a clear, dark night sky. They appear at a height of about 100 kilometres (65 miles) and have the shape of a flapping curtain or points radiating from a single dot.

Most settlements are on the west and Greenland The climate in Greenland is subarctic, with short, cool summers and bitterly cold winters. Along the fjords of the southwest coast, where most Greenlanders live, temperatures average 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) during the height of summer. But the temperature falls to a mean of 18 degrees Fahrenheit (-8 degrees Celsius) during wintertime. Temperatures are much colder in the northern interior. Demography.

      Greenland Vikings ‘had Celtic blood’
      Friday, 19 March 2010 11:28 RC News Norsemen who settled in southern Greenland carried more Celtic than Nordic blood – but they were still decidedly Scandinavian
      An analysis of DNA from a Viking gravesite near a 1000 year-old church in southern Greenland shows that those buried there had strong Celtic bloodlines, reported science website Videnskab.dk. The analysis – performed by Danish researchers on bones from skeletons found during excavations in south Greenland – revealed that the settlers’ Nordic blood was mixed with Celtic blood, probably originating from the British Isles.

Greenland : Culture
Greenland is the source of many of the weather changes in the northern hemisphere, and knowledge of Greenland weather is of prime importance for the prediction of conditions in the North Atlantic Ocean and in western Europe. Weather and radio stations are of inestimable value for Atlantic air traffic. In 1944, during World War II, a German radio-weather station on the northeast coast was destroyed by the U.S. Coast Guard, and various German attempts to establish weather bases on Greenland were thwarted by Coast Guard vessels. In May 1947, Denmark requested that the United States end the 1941 agreement.By the terms of other provisions,the armed forces of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization were authorized to use all naval, air, and military bases on the island. In the early 1950s the United States expanded its military operations in Greenland, constructing a large strategic air base at Thule, about 1,500 km from the North Pole. The United States relinquished its claim to land in northern Greenland, based on the explorations of the American explorer Robert Edwin Peary, when it purchased the Virgin Islands from Denmark in 1917. In May 1921, Denmark declared the entire island of Greenland to be Danish territory, causing a dispute with Norway over hunting and fishing rights. In 1931 a strip of land on the east coast was claimed by some Norwegian hunters, whose action was later recognized by the Norwegian government. The occupation was invalidated by the Permanent Court of International Justice at The Hague in 1933.
