This prose sampler from West Greenland reveals a century-old independent literary tradition, the rich written expression in a native North American language of an ancient and successful culture. Linguist Michael Fortescue compiled these excerpts to demonstrate the range of Greenlandic writing and make works in this flourishing language more accessible to English-speaking readers.

Michael Fortescue is a professor of linguistics at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and the author of many books, including Language Relations Across the Bering Strait and From the Writings of the Greenlanders: Kalaallit Atuakklaannit.
