Contrary to the Antarctic, the Arctic is populated with people who have needs that must be fulfilled. Modern welfare demands income and, in the Arctic, mining is a potential source. This paper will focus on Greenland, an autonomous region where the indigenous people are still the majority. Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark (the Realm) but in recent years has taken an increasing number of steps towards independence. The Self-Government Act (2009) is the last major step. Hard minerals and oil extraction are hoped to form an economic basis for independence.
