Becoming Greenlanders

By May 30, 2023September 16th, 2023No Comments

Premodern illustration of Greenlanders playing a game with a ballHumans first arrived on Greenland circa 2500 B.C.E. Successive waves of immigration, from the islands of the Arctic circle, Canada, and Scandinavia, peopled this land. Survival was difficult and at times small communities of different groups were so isolated they believed themselves to be totally alone. This exhibition tells the story — largely forgotten and never widely known — of the peoples who immigrated to this beautiful but challenging land.

This exhibit is presented by the James Ford Bell Library at the University Libraries.
