Description: Hans Island (Greenlandic/Inuktitut: Tartupaluk, French: ╬le Hans, Danish: Hans ě) is a small uninhabited barren knoll measuring 1.3 km▓ (0.5 mi▓), located at approximately 80░ 49′ 41″ N 66░ 38′ 46″ W in the centre of the Kennedy Channel of Nares StraitŚthe strait that separates Ellesmere Island from Northern Greenland and connects Baffin Bay with the Lincoln Sea. Hans Island is the smallest of three islands located in Kennedy Channel; the others are Franklin Island and Crozier Island.

The island is claimed by both Canada and Denmark. The dispute may turn into a test case on sovereignty claims along the Northwest Passage, a region that could become more important if climate change opens it up to more shipping.
