The proper term for Eskimos, a people who live in arctic Canada, Alaska USA and Greenland. Closely related to the Aleut. Also Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit, which has a very complex agglutinative grammar that can express entire sentences in a single long word.
(Inuit is plural, Inuk is singular.)
An example of Greenlandic Inuit:
Ataqqinassusermik inuup nammineq pigisaanik aammalu anooqatigiinnut ilaasortaasut tamarmik naligiimmik annaasassaanngitsumillu pisinnaatitaaffeqarnissaannik akuersissuteqarneq nunarsuarmi kiffaanngissuseqarnermut, naapertuilluarnermut eqqissinissamullu tunngaviummata...
"Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world...""
(From the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.)
