From the Writings of the Greenlanders

Kalaallit atuakkiaannit

by Fortescue, Michael (ed.)



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.
