Nutaarmiut Island (old spelling: Nutârmiut) is an island in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland.

Geography[edit]

Nutaarmiut Island is located in Tasiusaq Bay, in the north-central part of Upernavik Archipelago. It is separated from Mattaangassut Island in the northwest by a narrow Ikerasakassak strait, and from Qallunaat Island in the north by the waterways of Tasiusaq Bay.[1]

Settlement[edit]

The island is home to Nutaarmiut, the smallest village in the archipelago, perched on the eastern shore of the island.
