Nunavut is the largest and newest territory of Canada predominantly inhabited by Inuit. Nunavut compresses a major portion of Northern Canada and most of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, making it the fifth-largest country subdivision in the world with capital Iqualuit.
The people of the Canadian Arctic are known as the Inuit. They used to be called Eskimos, which came from a Native American word for 'eater of raw meat'. Now the Arctic people are officially known as the Inuit, which means 'the people', or singularly, Inuk, which means 'the person'.
