Greenlandic Americans (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Amerikkarmiut, Danish: Grønlandsk Amerikansk) 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 Greenland and Denmark as a whole and on whether an individual has Danish Greenlander ancestry, Inuit ancestry or both.
