Meaning of Eskimo
Eskimo or Es·ki·mos A group of peoples inhabiting the Arctic coastal regions of North America and parts of Greenland and northeast Siberia
Two principal competing etymologies have been proposed for the name “Eskimo”, both from the Innu-aimun (Montagnais) language. The word meaning “snowshoe netter”. The word assime·w means “she laces a snowshoe” in Montagnais.
I have my personal associations with word “Eskimo”. Most people who travel in Russia during the summer and notice that almost every block you can find an ice cream vendor. “Eskimo” is the name for any ice cream on a stick, probably because Eskimo Pie was an early import adopted by Russia.
Eskimo Pie is a brand name for a chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bar wrapped in foil, the first such dessert sold in the United States. It is now marketed by Nestlé, owners of Dreyer’s of the Western United States, and Edy’s of the Eastern United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskimo_Pie
Russian ice cream – natural, no high-fructose syrup, no chemicals. The color of Russian Eskimo is totally repeat color of Rose Eskimo.
