Instead of Eskimo, Inuit want to be referred to as Inuk or Inuit.
Despite the fact that it's become commonplace to call the Inuit "Eskimos," this is neither their preference nor a representation of their cultural history. The term "Eskimo," which is thought to have been initially created by either the French or the Danes, probably meant either "snow-shoe netter" or "meat eater." In any case, the majority of contemporary Inuit see the term "Eskimo" as derogatory against their race. So be sure to avoid using the offensive term when speaking with anything from an Inuit community. It's also critical to be aware that Inuk is singular and Inuit is for plural usage.
