Two DR News articles (there has also been good features in the DR evening tv-news).

DR: Mary helps abused women in Greenland:
Mary hjælper voldsramte kvinder i Grønland | Nyheder | DR

Greenlandish women: The royal visit sends a important message
Grønlandske kvinder: Royalt besøg sender vigtigt signal | Nyheder | DR


It sends a strong message that Crown Princess Mary the last three days have been visiting the North Atlantic in order to focus on violence against women in Greenland.

Although more than 64% of the women in Greenland has been abused, it's not something we talk about, and often it's the family's biggest secret.

Therefore, Crown Princess Mary, as chairman of the Mary Foundation, which works intensely to combat domestic violence, has traveled the 3,000 km up to the northern part of the Danish Kingdom.

- We must break the silence, says Crown Princess Mary.

The leader of the crisis center in Nuuk, Stina Birthilsin Svard, tells there's no doubt that Crown Princess Mary's visit are an important part in the fight against violence in Greenland, because it causes people to open their eyes for the problem.

- Had Mary not been here, we had not been so united in the fight against violence. Everyone knows her. This means that we will be heard, seen and taken seriously. She uses her status to help.

- The women will come and ask for help because they know that we are working with it right now, she says.

And the Greenlandic women, Arnajaraq Berthelsen and Dorte Møller Platuu from Nuuk, agree.

- I really hope that it's going to open people's eyes about how bad it is, says Arnajaraq Berthelsen.

She is pleased that Crown Princess Mary spends time helping battered women and she praises the Crown Princess's work, which among other things is through the Mary Foundation's conference 'Domestic violence - a shared responsibility'.

Crown Princess Mary is a role model for them and many other Greenlandic women as she is not born Dane and she is coming from another country, says Arnajaraq Berthelsen.

- She is like a sister to us.
- And that fact is essential for people dare to talk about the problem of violence, says Arnajaraq Berthelsen and Dorte Møller Platuu.

Daily Mail again: Princess Mary enjoys a cruise in Greenland while her family sets sail | Daily Mail Online

A BB video of Mary in fine form, saying: It's a pleasure to be here in Greenlandic. VIDEO: Hør kronprinsesse Mary tale grønlandsk | BILLED-BLADET

The sentence consists only of two words: Nuannaarutingaara tamaaniissinnaangama
And when you have untied your tongues, spare a little thought for Mary...

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2016.
Written by our Arctic reporter, Marianne Singer.

In the first photo in the article we see Mary wear seal-skin and wool from Greenland, designed by Jesper Høvring - for Greenlandic export.
And this is what she wore for the dinner in the evening of her first day in the Hans Egede House in the capital of Nuuk.

She had touched down in Nuuk in the forenoon and in the late afternoon she visited the crisis center in Nuuk. Unfortunately domestic and social issues is a very real problem in Greenland, so the crisis centers are alas not empty.
Tuesday she attended a conference with people from all over Greenland: Violence at Home.
62 % of all Greenlandic women have in some point in their lives been subjected to abuse/violence. (IIRC the DK numbers 20-25 %) And it's very much an issue you don't talk about.

BB has deadline at noon Tuesday and this is where the account ends.

Mary wore a necklace depicting polar bears, and they were presented to her on a previous visit to Greenland.

On Monday Mary started out by visiting the integrated institution (nursery/kindergarten/school combined) Sikkersoq
And here she was met with no less than three flower-children dressed in their finest. Aged 2-4, the children were a bit overwhelmed by all the commotion and the photographers blitzing away, getting photos of the irresistible motives the children were.
Mary chatted a bit with them and said afterwards: "It's always a pleasure to meet the Greenlandic children. They are a bit quiet and shy when you first meet them, but then, bit by bit, they open up". (*)
But with a town of some 16.000 all children in Nuuk were mobilized, also from other kindergartens. So Mary went over to say hi to those children as well.
Well, inside Mary was presented to the Greenlandic version of the Free from Bullying concept, and that includes a "by a good buddy-song" in Greenlandic.
Mary responded with a: "You were so good - a thousand thanks".

Greenland, has in contrast to DK, implemented free from bullying in all municipal schools and kindergarten. (In DK all schools are obliged to implement some kind of anti-bullying concept and that is not necessarily the one advocated by the Mary Foundation).
And Mary noticed that the concept is now a well-anchored part of Greenlandic schools and kindergartens.
The well-being of children and them having a good start at school and kindergarten in regards to their mates is crucial, said Mary.

Then she visited the crisis center and posed for selfies. Mary last visited the center in 2009.
The conference had not ended by BB's deadline.

(*) Greenland has a charming tradition. On the first day at school the children from families who can afford it dress up in their national costumes, if not they dress up in their finest.
That in contrast to DK, where children are dressed much more casual. As you may recall from Christian and Isabella's first days at school.

Thank you again, Muhler, taking the time to translate for us. I would be interested in seeing a closeup of Mary's polar bear necklace, if anyone has one. To me they looked like arrowheads; it was nice of her wear it.

Off topic warning: it's a holiday weekend here in the US - Labor Day is Monday. It's a day set aside to honor working men and women. Gets a little less relevant every year, IMO. It's the last holiday of the summer, so lots of people get the day off.

Indeed a very interesting accessory, but I wonder what it is made from? could it be ivory from walrus tusks or polar bear teeth?

I agree, Mary's focus on bullying and domestic violence should be applauded.
Domestic violence is something that should be discussed openly but many both women (and men) are too embarrassed while others feel they will not be able to cope or have nowhere to go. Some years ago a 25 year old work colleague of mine was murdered by her husband. They had been married for 4 years and everyone was sure they were so in love and yet we hear later that she had suffered for the beginning. There are just so many stories that could be told. If Mary's and her Foundation saves one life it is a job well done. Thank you Mary.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but I assume the pendants were most likely made from the same as most tupilaqs are made of these days: reindeer antlers or bones. It's Greenlandic/Inuit culture – just because it isn't your culture, doesn't mean it's something to about

Ready for a beautiful picture taken by Mary herself?

Last night Frederik and Mary held a dinner for the Mary Foundation and they have shared this picture on their Instragram Profile:

Quote:
"The Banqueting Hall provided the setting when the Crown Prince Couple last night held a dinner for the Mary Foundation Presidium."

I really enjoy that Mary so often take the pictures herself instead of using a prof photographer. It's a nice and personally touch
