Since the late 20th century, Indigenous peoples in Canada and Greenlandic Inuit consider "Eskimo" to be a pejorative term, and they more frequently identify as "Inuit" for an autonym. The Inuit live throughout most of Northern Canada in the territory of Nunavut , Nunavik in the northern third of Quebec , Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut in Labrador , and in various parts of the Northwest Territories , particularly around the Arctic Ocean. These areas are known in the Inuktitut language as the " Inuit Nunangat ". The Greenlandic Inuit are descendants of ancient indigenous migrations from Canada , as these people migrated to the east through the continent.
The Inuit are the most widespread and perhaps the best known aboriginal people on earth. In Inuit communities, the women play a crucial role in the survival of the group. The responsibilities faced by Inuit women were considered equally as important as those faced by the men. Because of this, the women were given due respect, but are not given an equal share of influence or power.
