The KN in KNI stands for Kalaallit Nunaat, the native Greenlandic term for Greenland. Lying mostly above the arctic circle, Greenland is the world’s largest island and home of some of the northernmost and coldest settlements on Earth. Though three-quarters of Greenland is covered by an ice sheet, viking explorer and 10th century public relations expert Eric the Red named the island “Greenland” in order to entice more settlers from Iceland which was, paradoxically, much greener and had far less ice. The current population of Greenland – about a third the size of the continental United States – is approximately 57,000; far smaller than the capacity of Chicago’s Soldier Field.
