Jim McLean Scottish Political Song Eskimo Republic (24) RE: Scottish Political Song Eskimo Republic 12 Oct 20

After very extensive research by myself, Stewart Black and Bill Wagman, Lanning's reference to the kayakers as Eskimos cannot be found. The conclusion is that another captain dismissed them in derogatory terms, but didn't use the word Eskimo.
The collective assumption is that Morris invented the phase himself...... I'm speaking as one of the original Eskimos!
