Greenlandic Americans (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Amerikkarmiut) are Americans of Greenlandic descent. They could be variously considered as a sub-group of Danish Americans or as an independent group on their own, depending both on the development of relations between Denmark and Greenland as a whole and on whether an individual has Danish Greenlander ancestry, Inuit ancestry or both.
