The word means "people" in the Inuit language Inuktitut. The singular of Inuit is Inuk." Indian and Northern Affairs Canada "A member of a group of Eskimoan peoples inhabiting the Arctic from northern Alaska eastward to eastern Greenland, particularly those of Canada". Answers.com "A member of a people inhabiting the Arctic (northern Canada or Greenland or Alaska or eastern Siberia); the Algonquians called them Eskimo (`eaters of raw flesh') but they call themselves the Inuit (`the people')." E.Look.org Inuit sculpture is made often using stone, antler, less frequently ivory and whalebone.
