Probably some descendants of the present Inuit culture settled down in Greenland and named the island as Kalaalit Nunaat meaning land of the people. Therefore Greenland Culture
has much in common with Inuit tradition. 75% of the populations of Greenland live in the towns. People usually hunt seal or other animals.
They built their own winter houses. Meat is one of the primary diets and blubber is used for fuel. Ice-fishing is quite common. Everyone with a team has to take part in the annual dog-sledge racing. Viking-Inuit is one of the major festivals and an integrated part of Greenland Culture
Eskimo Art continues to bear the sign of the intimate relation between form and function. The Drum Dance is among the major traditional dances of Greenland. Greenland music is a mixture of both the Inuit and Danish strands. The architecture includes both the traditional and the colonial style. The Handicraft products are very unique and utilitarian as well. Greenland Culture
is a melting pot of various things of all Nordic cultures.
