Greenlandic Americans (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Amerikkarmiut, Danish: Grønlandsk-Amerikanere) are Americans of Greenlandic descent.

Greenlandic Americans are often categorized as Scandinavian or Danish Americans, because of Greenland's status as an autonomous territory of Denmark. Some are in fact of Danish descent, though many are of Inuit ancestry, which is culturally distinct despite geographic similarities.
