Some find it to be an ethnic slur because children in Canada were brought up to believe that “eskimo” was a negative way to refer to someone who eats raw meat and because it was given to these people by non-natives.
Complicating the issue, though, is the fact that the etymology of the term is debated, with some believing that it originated within the Inuit language. Furthermore, some peoples of northern North America prefer the term to what seems to be the more politically correct “Inuit” because they are, in fact, not Inuit people.
It depends on the country if it is offensive or not.
