The Kujalleq administrative district ("Kommune Kujalleq") was founded on January 1, 2009.
It consists of the three former districts of Nanortalik,
Narsaq and Qaqortoq, and includes a substantial amount of uninhabited territory on the East Coast between Lindenow Fjord and Timmiarmiut,
which belonged to the former district of Tasiilaq.
Kommune Kujalleq covers an area of approx. 53,000 km2. By comparison, Denmark has an overall surface area that is nearly 10,000 km2
smaller. However, we only have a population here of just under 8,000, distributed among the three towns of Qaqortoq, Narsaq and Nanortalik,
plus 11 settlements, a number of sheep farms, a mine and a weather station.
People are the main focus of Kommune Kujalleq, and local citizens are our most important resource. We won't come far without human resources.
Well educated young people are essential to our future, but we shouldn't forget the older generations that helped build up
We live in a bilingual society where our history and culture have been influenced by cooperation between Inuit and Europeans. Everyone is welcome here.
It is my hope that this website will help to strengthen our local community and make it easier to find information about the administrative district.
South Greenland is a wonderful and
delightful place - let's work together to
make it even better!
