Greenland lies mostly north of the Arctic Circle and is separated from the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, on the west, primarily by the Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, and from Iceland, on the east, by the Strait of Denmark. The largest island in the world, Greenland has a maximum length, from its northernmost point on Cape Morris Jesup to Cape Farewell in the extreme south, of about 2,655 km (1,650 mi). The maximum distance from east to west is about 1,290 km (800 mi). The length of Greenland's coast, which is deeply indented with fiords, is estimated at 5,800 km (3,600 mi). The total area of Greenland is approximately 2,175,600 sq km (840,000 sq mi), of which about 84 per cent, or some 1,834,000 sq km (708,000 sq mi), is ice cap. The capital is Nuuk.

D uring the last few generations, rapid development has sharpened focus on the area of education. The conditions of our country will always demand that we develop and utilize our human resources in the best possible manner. We can not afford to waste even a little of the human potential latent in our people.
Just as education is important for enabling a small population to prepare itself adequately, an active cultural life is vital for sharing the experience of community fellowship found in our great land, which in spite of its beauty still places great demands on the role we play.

Primary schools and special schools The primary schools in Greenland are in many respects built up around the Scandinavian model. There are 9 years of compulsory schooling for everyone, taught in Greenlandic. The school system works toward advancing and developing the students' spiritual and physical abilities and emphasizes the development of independence in balance with respect for the student's personal and social responsibilities.

home search help worldguide ... Related Weblinks
Although modern life has well and truly caught up with the Inuit in the form of warm-climate foods, computers, luxury cars and outboard motors, as little as 40 years ago Greenlanders were still practicing a traditional way of life that revolved around the hunt. They believed that humans were shades - more of the dead than of the living - and it was only the techniques and rituals of the hunt that kept them within the realm of the human. Any error in judgement would mean falling back into the earlier animal world. Harmony with the land, respect for the dead and due homage to the animals that sacrificed themselves for the good of humanity were the hallmarks of a good hunter and kept the world from falling off its axis. Inuit folklore also told of a time when men could speak to animals; the words were shamanistic in character and delivery and held a tengeq or intrinsic power. If the words were uttered heedlessly they immediately lost their power. This belief may account for the Inuit's almost legendary reluctance to indulge in idle chitchat. Their brevity makes most non-Inuits look bold and brash. Tupilak , once carved out of bone, skin and chunks of peat, are small grotesque-looking figures that wouldn't look out of place in an Evil Dead film. They originally worked as catalysts for misfortune and death, although the carver had to be careful that the victim's juju was weaker than his own to avoid a fatal backlash. These days

Greenland History
The first people to find their way to the world's largest island arrived about 5,000 years ago from what's now northern Canada. Over time, several different cultural groups migrated to the island. The Thule (pronounced TOO-lay ), the ancestors of the Inuit that now live in Greenland, arrived in the early 900s AD. They were soon joined by Scandinavians when Eric the Red established a Viking colony on the island in the 980s. The European settlements flourished for a time, but by the 1400s, the Scandinavian presence had withered. It wasn't until the 1700s that Danes and Norwegians again established outposts. In 1814 Denmark got political control of Greenland, and it continues to play a large role in island affairs. A home-rule government was instituted in 1979, which provides for a great deal of local autonomy in day-to-day affairs. Denmark remains responsible for issues such as defense and foreign affairs.

7. Greenland Culture
The Inuit share a common language and culture with those in Canada and Alaska Whilstthe West Coast of Greenland is relatively populated, the East Coast, Tunu
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.

The Greenland Saga
Review by Brian Spicer Publisher: Avalanche Press LTD
Type: Adventure Supplement
Price: US$12.95
Of the large number of companies producing d20 products, few seem interested in providing players with a historical setting as opposed to a fantasy setting. But Avalanche Press is doing just that with the Greenland Saga: The Lost Norse Colony. This book is a sourcebook/adventure set in the historical Norse colony of Greenland in the 1450's. The first several pages present the player with an excellent overview of Greenland culture, religious beliefs, and economy. The second portion is the actual adventure scenario. Completeness:
The Greenland Saga is an excellent book containing enough background and cultural information to allow a Gamemaster to construct a vivid and believable adventure set in fifteenth century greenland. The book has dozens of NPCs to spice up the adventure, or act as templates for the GM's own scenarios. Because the book is supposed to be more historical than fantastic, there is a noticible lack of monsters included in the book. A creature called a Uniped is the only entry into the monster catagory. Design:
The book presents the historical and cultural background in the beginning of the book, and the adventure material follows in a logical and linear fashion. The adventure is composed of several sections, and each section is clearly and precisely explained and offers the GM several different ways to end the scenario.

Greenlandic Culture
Jump to images

Throughout his life, Greenland's most famous ethnographer and explorer, Knud Rasmussen, praised Greenland's original Inuit residents for their strength, daring, and intelligence. In fact, Rasmussen won international fame by copying the Inuit peoples' ingenious hunting and survival skills on his many trips mapping and exploring the arctic north. In his 1908 book on the people and cultures of the arctic called "The People of the Polar North," Rasmussen wrote, "On this mighty stretch of coast of more than 10,000 kilometers, where they bridged points as far apart as the East [sic] of Greenland and Alaska, the Aleutic Isles and Siberia, they have understood, as no other hunting people, the art of self-preservation, and in the midst of a merciless fight for existence they have created a culture which compels the greatest admiration of all white men." Contemporary Greenlandic society evolved after more than two centuries of Danish colonialism and more than 4,500 years of Inuit colonization of the ice-bound island. Despite a very strong European influence, mostly from Denmark, Greenlanders share a common cultural affinity with the Inuit residents in Alaska, Siberia, and Canada who Rasmussen knew so well. Modern-day Greenlanders are extremely proud of that legacy. (See the Greenland map , courtesy of the University of Texas library system.)

Greenland Summary
Geography, Culture, and History
Greenland is the largest island in the world, measuring 2,670 km from its northern to southern tips, but it has a human population of only about 50,000. All of Greenland has an Arctic climate (mean temperatures below +10 E C for the warmest month). Eighty-five percent of its 2,175,600 sq km area is covered with a massive ice cap that reaches 3,200 m near the center and is over 1,370 m thick in places. Only the Antarctic ice sheet is larger. It holds 9% of the world's fresh water and if all the ice were to melt, the world's oceans reportedly would rise six to seven meters. Annual snows accumulate on the cap and due to weight, the ice flows out toward the edges. From the central mass, ribbons of ice descend along mountain valleys and ravines, pushing hills or large rocks and gravel before them. At other times, the glacier may crown or appear to hang atop high cliff faces. The glacier directly joins the sea in some locations and may move at rates up to 25-30 m each day, berthing icebergs the size of city blocks. The native people of Greenland are believed to be descendants of aboriginal hunters and the "Thule Culture" which probably came to Greenland about the same time as the Norsemen who later vanished. The native peoples (Eskimo culture) of the Arctic are known more traditionally as Inuit"the People." The term "Greenlander" is usually given to all native people of Greenland. The native people of northwestern Greenland, who distinguish themselves from other West Greenlanders, are given their own name by themselvesInuhuit meaning "great and beautiful human beings." Northwest Greenland is known as the Thule District or Avanersuaq.

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.
