Eskimo Controversy

Question:
Dear Sir or Madam
Below is the search that came up while I was using the computer for research. This is your ad on the search engine. I became interested and did a little research about the Eskimo meaning eaters of raw fish.

Please recheck your sources as my research shows Eskimo means Eater Of Raw "Flesh" not Fish.

Controversies - Is A Raw Diet Dangerous?

... the modern diet that the notion of eating or feeding raw meat, for example, is ... The name Eskimo means eater of raw fish. ...

Answer:
Thank you for bringing that to our attention.

Our research shows it actually doesn't mean either - the word eskipo in Cree means eater of raw meat, but the word Eskimo actually means "snowshoe-netter" or "lacing of a snowshoe."

Since there seems to be debate on it, we are just going to remove the statement from our literature. The point still remains: the natural diet is raw.
