Nordic Co-operation opens Culture House in Nuuk
A new Nordic culture house, Katuaq, has been opened in the Greenland capital Nuuk. The complex will provide a home for cultural activities from the Nordic region and Greenland, as the largest cultural centre in the world's largest island. "Katuaq means drumsticks, and I hope that the culture house will be a leading rhythm in Greenland's cultural life," said Greenland's Premier Lars Emil Johansen. The Greenland Culture Centre is probably the largest cultural event planned by the Nordic Council of Ministers in the 1990s. With contributions from Greenland, Denmark and the NCM, Kanaq has cost in the region of 91 million kroner. Over 500 guests were present at the opening ceremony. The Norwegian Minister for Nordic Co-operation Grete Knudsen, presented the new culture house with a DKK 300,000 kroner cheque from the Nordic countries as further support to develop Nordic projects. Kanaq received a total of DKK 1.2 million in presents from various sources. The Culture House has been designed as a meeting place to bind the Nordic countries even closer to Greenland, which is an autonomous region of Denmark. At 4000 square meters, the building houses a theatre, concert hall and cinema - Greenland's first.

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.

Greenland Culture Eighty percent of the people that live in Greenland were born there. The people in Greenland speak Greenlandic (an Inuit language with some Danish words). They may also speak Danish. They hunt seals and other animals. They eat the meat and use the blubber for fuel. They build their own winter houses. They build their villages out of wood. Seals are still an important food to people in Greenland. They also like vegetables. Most Greenland families have around six members. Three -fourths of the people of Greenland live in towns. Greenland's capital is Holsteinsborg. Children between the ages of 6 and 15 must go to school. History Land Economy Government ... Home

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

On the other hand, the country is dependent on a single resource, fishing. Its economy is closely tied to fluctuations in the fishing industry and price developments on the global market. It also still has close cultural, political, social and economic ties with Denmark in the form of annual subsidies of over DKK 2,500m and the free provision of education, hospital and other services to Greenlandic citizens.

History [top]

The first people migrated to Greenland across the Davis Strait from the American continent more than 4,000 years ago. The first links with Europe were established with the Norse settlements in 985 AD and lasted until the mid 15th century. The flourishing European whaling industry in the 16th century restored regular visits to Greenland, but a permanent link was not established until the settlement of the Danish-Norwegian priest Hans Egede in 1721. This formed the basis of Danish sovereignty for the next 258 years, where the establishment of the trade monopoly the Royal Greenland Trade Department, the KGH ( ), was particularly significant.

    SOUTHERN GREENLAND 1950-53: PRINCE CHRISTIAN SOUND, BLUIE EAST 1.. After staying at my Copenhagen home for three years wanderlust beckoned and I left for Greenland in September 1950, at age 26, aboard the MS UMANAK bound for Julianehaab and Prince Christian Sound (PCS/Bluie East 1). Assignment to the BE-1 weather station as a radio maintenance technician offered vastly better conditions than those experienced at Thule, including actually working in my occupational field. Reaching Prince Christian Sound (BE-l) around October 1st required a somewhat circuitous trip from Julianehaab. Aboard ship was a group of Danish VIP's and U.S. Army officers seeking a new location for the PCS station. They did not find a suitable site so the station is today at the original location spotted by Captain Elliott Roosevelt's air survey in 1942. The location merits a few descriptive words taken from USAF history: "The only possible site was in a narrow ravine about 15-20 miles from the mouth of the Prince Christian Sound at the Atlantic ocean. The Sound is 3 to 4 kilometers wide and becomes ice-jammed during some months during the Spring. The men at this station are isolated, except for radio contact, depressions occur during the periods when ice blocks ship arrivals. They live in sturdy buildings, cabled to the rocks, to withstand high winds that have been recorded at times from 90 to 175 miles per hour. During the 1942-43 season three anemometers and two (weather) instrument shelters were blown away. When a slide damaged the buildings, new materials were flown in by a B-25 medium bomber. The plane made a hazardous 'bombing run' up the ravine, dropped a tightly wired bundle of lumber to the men, and climbed steeply up the face of a mountain to get out of the trap."

    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.
