Exploring Greenland’s Cultures
Greenland is the world’s largest island with the lowest population density. All its the population lives along the coast. People who live in Greenland are considered citizens of Denmark, but just under 90 percent of the population was born in Greenland and is either native Greenlander (descendants of Inuit and Thule cultures), of European (usually Danish) descent, or of mixed heritage. The other 10 percent were born outside of Greenland, mostly in Denmark.
Generosity, kindness, and courteousness are valued in Greenlandic culture. Abundance of anything is expected to be shared with friends and family. Age and experience are highly respected.
