The Scandinavian diaspora may refer to
Viking and Old Norse
People emigrated to the United States, Canada, Sweden, Brazil and Argentina. They have also started Utopian communities in places included, but not limited to, Australia, Brazil, Paraguay, France, and even Cuba and Sierra Leone.
Emigrants became Kola Norwegians, Norwegian Americans, Norwegian Canadians, Norwegian Australians, Norwegian New Zealanders, and Norwegian South Africans. The first modern Norwegian settlement in the United States was Norwegian Ridge, in what is now Spring Grove, Minnesota. There are also people of Norwegian ancestry in South America (Brazil and Argentina) and the Southern Atlantic and Antarctic Islands.
