Eskimo is the collective term for several cultural groups indigenous to the Arctic coastal regions of Siberia, Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. Some claim that the word Eskimo is pejoritive, based on a disputed etymology. There are two primary groups of Eskimos: the Inuit of northern Alaska, Canada, and Greenland, and the culturally and ethnically distinct Yupik of western and southern Alaska and northeastern Siberia.
