Culturally, Greenland is characterised by the extreme conditions the population has lived under and the fantastic environment for human existence provided by nature.

Life as sealers and hunters in small isolated communities is reflected in the language, music, myths, clothing, food and homes.

Everything has been developed from the materials available and with a frugality, ingenuity and impressive sense of strength, quality and simplicity.

Much is history, but the cultural roots are strong and alive. A vibrant and dynamic culture is developing in line with and with respect for traditions and beliefs, leaving clear traces in the culture of today in all areas.
