About Yup'ik Eskimo
"The Yup'ik are a group of indigenous or aboriginal peoples of western, southwestern and south central Alaska and the Russian Far East.  They are Eskimo and are related to the Inuit and Inupiat peoples.  Yupik peoples are:  Alutiiq or Sugpiaq of the Alaskan Peninsula; Central Alaskan Yup'ik of the Yukon-Kuskokwim delta, the Kuskokwim River and along the northern coast of Bristol Bay and the northern Alaska Peninsula and Silberian Yupik.

As of 2001 there were approximately 24,000 Yup'ik people, most of these residing in Alaska.

Yup'ik comes from the word yuk meaning "person".  Pik means "real" or "genuine".  Together they translate to "real people".  taken from Wikipedia
