Greenland is a very large Island in the Arctic Ocean.

It has been the home to First Nations peoples related to Canada's Inuit for thousands of years.

A colony of Norse adventurers was established on the Southern tip of Greenland at the end of the tenth Century. This colony existed for several generations.

A Danish presence was re-established, and Greenland was ruled by Denmark for several centuries. The inhabitants of Greenland how have a measure of local autonomy.
