Danish American Heritage Society
The Danish American Heritage Society (DAHS) was founded in 1977 to explore and record the history of Danish immigrants to the United States and Canada. At its core the Danish American Heritage Society is a historical organization. However, we use the word heritage in our name to indicate our support of broader activities such as sponsoring conferences and cooperating with other organizations on joint projects. The DAHS believes that there is an intrinsic value in identifying, understanding and preserving our ethnic heritage. We devote our energies to achieving that goal. The DAHS publishes twice-yearly a historical journal, The Bridge, which contains scholarly and popular articles and other content of interest to our constituency. DAHS members receive a complementary subscription. The DAHS organizes and sponsors periodic conferences highlighting current research on Danish American and Danish life, culture and history. The DAHS provides Bodtker Grants stipends for students and scholars interested in studying and researching topics related to Danish immigration to North America and Danish American culture.

Vinland Longships
Vinland Longships is a Viking reenactment group that owns a 22 foot Viking Faering (four oared) boat. The Skogar Þrostur (SKO-gar THROW-stur) which means "Blackbird" in Old Norse, is based on the faering boat buried with the Gokstad ship in Norway in the 9th century. The reenactors who founded Vinland Longships have organized educational demonstrations on Viking ships and Viking life, crafts and culture for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the Norwegian Embassy and the American Swedish Museum, among many others. They taught docents at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and have travelled to L'Anse aux Meadows, Canada, St. Petersberg, Russia and up and down the east coast educating people about Viking ship construction, navigation and history. The Adventures of the Skogar Þrostur are documented at http://vinlandlongship.livejournal.com/.
