    Post Pictures of Inuits from Greenland

    Aka Debes

    Pictures from Greenland

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

    Hanseeraq Kaspersen
    Kîstat Lund
    Hanseeraq Frederiksen

    Not to mention Inuit who have totally Scandinavian names:

    Peter Sikemsen
    Poul Erik Isaksen
    Ms. Athil Kaspersen
    Ms. Johanne Jeremiassen
    Saale Aronsen
    Frederik Lange
    Inger Siegstad
    Kristian Egede
    Nathan Ottosen
    Ole Joelsen
    Otto Fillipussen

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

    Hvalsø Egede

    John Rasmussen and his racially mixed family

    Rassmussen's wife is probably 1/2 Inuit, their daughter 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.


    > Hvalsø Egede Admixture apparent in this green-eyed, light brown haired Inuit: Aka Debes

    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.
