The word Eskimo is an offensive term that has been used historically to describe the Inuit throughout their homeland, Inuit Nunangat, in the arctic regions of Alaska, Greenland and Canada, as well as the Yupik of Alaska. The origin of the word Eskimo is a matter of some contention, but it is generally understood to be of Algonquian origin. It was long thought to mean “eaters of raw meat.”
