Hiya...
Peace right back to you, but I must make one quick comment.
The work "Eskimo' is actually offensive to Inuit people. The "E" word means "Raw Fish Eater", and in most northern parts of the world, is equivalent to using the "N" word.
"Inuit" is the term that is more preferred, but most people don't know this as there are very few Inuit people outside of the Arctic circle.

Callooh said...

I knew that about Eskimo (I did live in Thunder Bay ya know), but I assumed here it was the name of the language used. I will correct immediately.

thanks....

Gary said...

Cool.

Callooh said...

yeah, it's cool in any language.

Lance Morrison said...

Hmmmm. I wonder if you may be right. Maybe it is also a dialect in Greenland... being Canadian, I wouldn't know.
I think I may have to look that one up.
As for Thunder Bay, I even know people who live in the NWT that didn't know it was derogitory.
And... one time, I was at a huge hairshow in Vegas, and one of the models was Inuit. When the hairdresser was talking about her cut/colour, he was also commenting on how beautiful she was and asked us if we knew what her ethnicity was. I had guessed Inuit, but all the other 3000 people in the room were shouting anthing but. Finally, Sam said, "No. She's an Eskimo. Isn't that amazing!" As if it is a miricle that there was a beautiful Inuit person on this planet.
Neat.

Found this on Wikipedia:

"In Greenland the official form of Inuit language, and one of the official languages of the state, is called Kalaallisut. In other languages, it is often called Greenlandic or some cognate term. However, neither the words Kalaallisut nor Greenlandic are generally used to refer to the variants of Canada or Alaska. In Alaska the language is called Inupiatun, but the variants of the Seward Peninsula are distinguished from the other Alaskan variants by calling them Qawiaraq, or for some dialects, Bering Straits Inupiatun.

In Canada, the word Inuktitut is routinely used..."

Maybe you should let the source/author of the translations know about their 'oops'.
