Mille Gabriel - Andet

During colonial times (1721–1953), Danish officials, arctic explorers and missionaries collected archaeological and ethnographical artefacts in Greenland. As a result, the National Museum of Denmark eventually became the holder of one of the world’s largest Arctic collections. From 1982–2001, Denmark and Greenland has engaged in an extensive museum partnership resulting in the return of approximately 35,000 archaeological and ethnographic artefacts – a process later identified as Utimut, the Greenlandic word for return.
