Eskimos live in Arctic regions across the globe, mainly in Canada, Russia, Greenland, the Aleutian Islands and the United States. The term "Eskimo" is rarely used to describe people of these tribes anymore; instead, "Inuit" is appropriately used.
The Inuit population is descended from past tribes of whale hunters who lived in the Arctic. The majority of the Inuit population worldwide continue to live in Northern parts of the world. While practices like whale hunting and other aspects of the culture have been passed down and are still often done, Inuits have also integrated modern technology into their culture.
