Aron of Kangeq (born in Kangeq on April 9, 1822; died March 12, 1869) was a Greenland Inuit hunter, painter, and oral historian. His woodcuts and watercolors are noted for their depiction of Inuit culture and history, and the often violent encounters between Inuit and Danish colonizers. His storytelling is known to children's literature in Greenland.[1][2][3]
