Pictures from Greenland (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/default.htm)

Notice the combination of Inuit and Scandinavian names, i.e.:

Hanseeraq Kaspersen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/hanseeraq.jpg)
Kîstat Lund (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/kunst.jpg)
Hanseeraq Frederiksen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/hanseeraq2.jpg)

Not to mention Inuit who have totally Scandinavian names:

Peter Sikemsen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/peter-sik.jpg)
Poul Erik Isaksen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/poulerik.jpg)
Ms. Athil Kaspersen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/athil.jpg)
Ms. Johanne Jeremiassen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/johannestue.jpg)
Saale Aronsen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/saale.jpg)
Frederik Lange (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/valgspil.jpg)
Inger Siegstad (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/aarets-kok-2.jpg)
Kristian Egede (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/harmkrist.jpg)
Nathan Ottosen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/nathan.jpg)
Ole Joelsen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/olejoe.jpg)
Otto Fillipussen (http://www.greenland-guide.gl/narsaq-foto/ottofil.jpg)

Here's a seemingly "Nordish" Greenlander, but something looks a little funny about him, the eyes, low-rooted nose and cheekbones...

John Rasmussen and his racially mixed family (http://iserit.greennet.gl/nrqfoto/gallery4.htm)

Rassmussen's wife (http://iserit.greennet.gl/nrqfoto/moriva.JPG) is probably 1/2 Inuit, their daughter (http://iserit.greennet.gl/nrqfoto/canadival.JPG) is 1/4. Would she be mistaken as "white" by most people?

Yes, a little 'funny' but the gaunt and sunken cheeks tell me that if there is Inuit in his background it isn't a strong strain.

For sure.


> Rassmussen's wife is probably 1/2 Inuit,

Or more, I'd say.


> Their daughter is 1/4. Would she be mistaken as "white" by most people?

I'd say she would. Post her on SF and see what you get. :) Without knowing, I'd even be inclined to say a chubby-cheeked Borreby with a *hint* of something else....

Interesting though to think about. I can remember reading in TRoE (I think) about Inuit-like skeletal remains being found in a Paleolithic strata in Euorope....and perhaps some anthropologists of the time speculating that there was an Inuit-like strain present in Euorope at that time. I wonder though if it might have been a case of 'parallel evolution' and different stocks taking similar courses of evolution in similar, arctic and sub-arctic conditions.

There's something odd goes on with Greenlanders, a skull might show no sign of Eskimo admixture and yet the teeth be Sinodont. And vice versa this works.
