WHAT DOES ESQUIMAU MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Esquimau

Eskimo

Eskimo is a term for the indigenous peoples who have traditionally inhabited the northern circumpolar region from eastern Siberia, across Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. The term "Eskimo" is used, particularly in Alaska, to include both Yupik and Iñupiat. In Canada and Greenland, the term "Eskimo" has fallen out of favor as it is considered by some to be pejorative and has been widely replaced by the term "Inuit," "Alaska Natives," or other terms. Alaska Natives refers to all indigenous peoples of Alaska, including indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast and the Dene. While the term "Eskimo" is sometimes considered offensive, it is not, in its linguistic origins, a fundamentally offensive word. Alternate terms for American Eskimos, such as Inuit–Yupik, have been proposed, but none have come into widespread acceptance within the United States. Two main groups have historically been referred to as Eskimos by outsiders: the Yupik and Inuit. A third group, the Aleut, is closely related. The two main peoples known as "Eskimo" are the Inuit of northern Alaska, Canada, and Greenland and the Yupik of Central Alaska and Siberia.
