The article examines the interplay between Religious Education, Identity and Nation-Building in Greenland. Through analysis of different levels of curriculum it is demonstrated that just as Christian Religion was an important part of the early Nation-Building process in Greenland in the 18th century, Inuit Religion is used as an important part of the Nation-Building process today as Greenland moves towards greater independence.
