which name is correct ? 

native  - aboriginal  -  first nation

Some call them the Inuit Indians or the Inuit tribe and even more commonly, Eskimos. As an Inuit art gallery we hear these terms used all the time. This page has been created to help educate people as to who the Inuit are and to help build an appreciation for these wonderful people and their amazing artistic ability.
The Inuit people are the most widely dispersed group in the world still leading a partly aboriginal way of life.
They live in a region that spans more than 3,500 miles. This region includes Greenland, the northern fringe of North America, as well as a sector of eastern Siberia. Inuit are racially distinct from the North American Indians. In fact, the Inuit are closely related to the Mongolian peoples of eastern Asia. The Inuit - Aleut languages are unrelated to any American Indian language groups.
At no time did the Inuit possess a national or well - defined tribal sense. The Inuit emphasis was always on the local and familial group rather than on associations based on land and territory. The terms Inuit Indians, the Inuit Indians, Inuit tribe and Eskimo are not the correct names for these kind and gentle people.

Inuit simply means 'The People' in Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit and Inuit is the name they wish to be known by.
Inuit - their rightful name, replaces 'Eskimo' a term based on a Algonkian word meaning 'eaters of raw flesh.'

In the words of Jose Kusugak, president of Inuit Tapirisit Kanatami, an organization that represents Inuit from Labrador to the Northwest Territories, "In Canada and America we are trying to make people understand that we are a distinct people and not Indians... We want them to understand that Inuit work real hard to get children educated and make sure they hold on to their culture." -
The Inuit population was approximately 50,000 at the time of the first widespread contact with Europeans.
An estimated 2,000 Siberian Inuit lived near the Bering Strait, the Alaskan Inuit numbered about 25,000.
The Central Eskimos who inhabited northern Canada numbered about 10,000. The Labrador Inuit totalled
about 3,000, while the Inuit on Greenland totalled about 10,000.

The terms "aboriginal" or "native" people apply not only to the Inuit, but to the North American Indians, and Métis. The term "First Nations" however refers only to Indians.
There are three distinct aboriginal groups in Canada :
* North American Indians (population: 554,290)
* Métis (population: 210,190)
* Inuit (population: 41,080)

(Source: 1996 Census of Canada)
Much of the attention the Inuit people and their culture receives has been brought about as a result of their tremendous skill as artists, particularly as stone carvers, printmakers and recently creators of jewellery. Inuit art was first brought to the attention of the world outside of the North by James Houston in the late 1940's. James Houston also taught the Inuit people how to make prints. Today, the Inuit support themselves primarily through the sale of their art. In the award winning documentary film "Songs in Stone" which was shot primarily on Baffin Island, James Houston recollects that historic moment when he first received a stone carving as a gift from an Inuit man.

canada - going deeper - The Ecological Indian: Myth and History

Indians sometimes used all the meat from animals they killed, and they sometimes did not.
To conserve a resource, in its most widespread definition, means not to waste it. Indians who ate only the buffalo’s tongue, only the fetus, or only the hump, or who abandoned bulls because they preferred cows, were not by definition conservationists - unless the definition is altered.

ABOUT NUNAVUT'S OFFICIAL LANGUAGES
THE NEW OFFICIAL LANGUAGES ACT FOR NUNAVUT RECOGNIZES THE INUIT (INUKTITUT AND INUINNAQTUN), ENGLISH AND FRENCH LANGUAGES AS THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGES WITHIN THE TERRITORY.
THE INUIT LANGUAGE INCLUDES INUINNAQTUN AND INUKTITUT.
THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT WAYS PEOPLE IN NUNAVUT WRITE THE INUIT LANGUAGE:
QALIUJAAQPAIT (OR ROMAN ORTHOGRAPHY) AND QANIUJAAQPAIT (SYLLABICS).
MOST INUKTITUT SPEAKERS IN NUNAVUT USE SYLLABICS TO WRITE THEIR LANGUAGE. THIS WRITING SYSTEM IS MADE UP OF ABOUT
60 CHARACTERS, MOST OF THEM REPRESENTING COMPLETE SYLLABLES.
THUS “NU” IN
ROMAN ORTHOGRAPHY IS WRITTEN WITH ONE CHARACTER IN SYLLABICS: “”. THE ROMAN ORTHOGRAPHY WRITING SYSTEM USES THE SAME LETTERS THAT ARE USED TO WRITE
ENGLISH OR FRENCH
MANY PEOPLE WHO NORMALLY USE SYLLABICS WILL ALSO USE ROMAN ORTHOGRAPHY, ESPECIALLY FOR WRITING E-MAILS OR WHEN DOING OTHER TASKS ON COMPUTERS. THE GOVERNMENT OF NUNAVUT’S COMPUTERS NOW HAVE THE CAPACITY TO WORK IN SYLLABICS. INUINNAQTUN SPEAKERS ALMOST ALWAYS USE ROMAN ORTHOGRAPHY.
IN THE 2006 CENSUS, 64% OF RESPONDENTS REPORTED USING THE INUIT LANGUAGE IN THE HOME, EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE MOTHER TONGUE OF 83% PERCENT OF THE POPULATION. THIS REPRESENTS A 12% DECLINE IN TEN YEARS. THIS IS PARTLY DUE TO A VERY LARGE YOUTH POPULATION, WITH A MEDIAN AGE IN 2006 OF 23.1 YEARS, COMPARED TO CANADA’S MEDIA AGE OF 39.5 YEARS.
FRENCH
THE 2006 CENSUS REPORTED 420 INDIVIDUALS WITH FRENCH AS THEIR MOTHER TONGUE AND 1200 CLAIMING TO SPEAK IT. NUNAVUT’S CAPITAL OF IQALUIT IS HOME TO A THRIVING FRANCOPHONE COMMUNITY. ALTHOUGH CLOSE TO 800 IN IQALUIT REPORTED THE ABILITY TO SPEAK FRENCH, THERE ARE MANY FRANCO-INUIT FAMILIES IN THE CITY. THE FRENCH SPEAKING POPULATION IS SERVED BY A SCHOOL, A DAYCARE, A COMMUNITY RADIO STATION, AND A CULTURAL CENTRE THAT IS OPEN DAILY AND STAGES VARIOUS EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
ENGLISH
ENGLISH IS VERY PREVALENT IN REGIONAL CENTRES AND LARGER COMMUNITIES AND IS THE DE-FACTO LANGUAGE OF GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRY.

Nunavut’s Official Languages Act came into force on April 1, 2013, establishing the Inuktitut, English and French as the territory’s official languages.
I am proud that Inuit in Nunavut now have a clear statement of their inherent right to the use of the Inuit Language in full equality with English and French.

James Arreak, Nunavut’s languages minister - 2013
nunatsiaqonline.ca
The new Government of Nunavut department known in English as the Department of Family Services will be called Inulirijikkut in the Inuit language .
The word is based on the term “inuliriji” - ''person who help people'' - ''social worker'' - ''person who works with people'' .

inuit poetry

There are only very few Inuit, but millions of qallunaaq (white people) just like mosquitoes. It is something very special  and wonderful to be an Inuk- we are like the snow geese. If we abandon our Inuit ways, or no longer find it important to use our language, we will be nothing but just another mosquito   -    Abraham Okpik, 1979

the Inuktitut word for computer is qarasaujaq — "something that works like a brain" — while qulimiguulik, meaning "that which has something going through the space above itself is Inuktitut for helicopter.
In Inuktitut, there are several hundred basic verb endings, as well as variations depending on the sound system. Take, for example, the verb root malik - "follow."

maliktunga — "I follow"
malikkassik — "because you two follow"
malikkit — "follow them!"
malikkuttikkuk — "if we two followed those two"
malingmangaakku — "whether I followed her"

+- 40 parole  - ma anke 150 -  per nominare la NEVE

e nessuna per la guerra

the Great Eskimo Vocabulary Hoax - grande bufala del vocabolario eschimese   

gli inuit  avrebbero solo due parole per dire  'neve'

e alle poche parole/radice  collegherebbero un numero elevato di nuove parole

The story about Inuit words for snow is completely wrong. That language group uses multiple suffixes so you can derive not 50  but 150 words for snow.

parole  nuove
Sheena Adams, coordinatrice dell’Inuvik regional Energy project dell’Arctic Energy alliance, sta collaborando con gli anziani di Inuvialuit per redigere un vocabolario  nella lingua Inuvialuktun con i nuovi termini per l’energia rinnovabile.
...
la parola 'vento' esisteva già in Inuvialuktun, così come la parola per 'turbina', anche se in realtà in Inuvialuktun si riferisce alle ali di una libellula, quindi la parola turbine eoliche è venuta da sola.    Amos dice che Le radici delle parole sono antiche.
E’ interessante notare che quella che è piaciuta loro di più non  una parola che ho  chiesto loro di tradurre, ma sono riusciti a farlo e hanno deciso che era la loro preferita in assoluto. Questa parola è  taniktuun, che si traduce in apprendimento collaborativo. La loro definizione di taniktuun è: Lavorare insieme, impariamo e diventiamo più intelligenti.
