Greenland (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaat, meaning "the humans' land"; Danish: Grønland, meaning "Greenland") is a self-governed Danish territory.
Though geographically and ethnically an Arctic island nation associated with the continent of North America, politically and historically Greenland is closely tied to Europe.
Most Greenlanders have both Kalaallit (Inuit) and Scandinavian ancestry, and speak Greenlandic (Kalaallisut) as their first language.

The Bush administration's "War on Terror"-- firmly supported by Denmark (Kalaallit Nunaat's colonial master) in the international arena-- has become the latest excuse for the United States to deny the rights of refugees to go home to Uummannaq, the name given to their territory before the forced expulsion.
