Greenlandic belongs to the Eskimo family of languages, and therefore it is a “polysynthetic” language. Long word, which is very appropriate as one word in Greenlandic can mean a whole sentence in other languages. (“Polysynthetic” means words are made with a root, one or more affixes and a suffix). So you can say a lot in one word in this beautiful language of the land of the ice caps.
The culture of Greenland is tied to Greenlandic Inuit tradition (the population is mostly Inuit) and the extreme living conditions. Life as sealers and hunters in small, isolated communities is reflected in the language, music, myths, clothing, food, and homes.
