    saying Yup’ik Eskimo is like saying Table Mesa

    @tundraboy:

    That’s roughly correct, or “end table” or “dining room table”. Unfortunately, most people won’t know that Eskimo people have major language and cultural differences between them. They won’t know the major Alaska Athabascan groups either. [from what I've seen in news articles, most people don't know the differences between Eskimo and Indian peoples.]

    That’s why I used both terms, but it is awkward. Any better suggestion for a world-wide audience? I could use “Central Eskimo”.
