Tim Chesterton Eskimo Republic Political Song Book (59* d) RE: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book 06 Nov 10


Ewan's use of the phrase 'the Inuit people' illustrates one of the difficulties with using the word 'Inuit'. Since it simply means 'people', to say 'Inuit people' is somewhat redundant. And it gets even stranger when someone assumes it's a singular ('Johnny is an Inuit', which makes Johnny some sort of multiple personality...).
