  2. Information Related To The Text i. Eskimos Any member of a group of peoples who, with the closely related Aleut, constitute the chief element in the native population of the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Greenland, Alaska, Canada, and far eastern Russia. Self-designations vary among the languages and dialects of the Eskimo peoples. They include such names as Inuit, Inupiat, Yupik, and Alutiit, each of which is a regional variant of “the people” or the “real people.” The oldest known Eskimo
culture is that from a site on Umnak Island in the Aleutians, for which an age of 3,018 (plus or minus 2
  30) years was recorded. In the late 20th century there were an estimated 17,000 self-described Eskimo: some 51,000 in Greenland and Denmark, 43,000 in Alaska, 21,000 in Canada, and about 1,6000 in Siberia. Traditional Eskimo culture was totally adapted to an extremely cold, snow-and icebound environment in which vegetable foods were almost nonexistent , trees were scarce, and caribou , seal, walrus, and whale meat, and fish were the major food sources. Dogsleds were the basic means of transport on land. Eskimo clothing was fashioned of caribou furs, which provided protection against the extreme cold. In summer many Eskimos lived in animal-skin tents. Their basic social and economic unit was the nuclear family, and their religion was animistic. ii. Holland Historical region of the Netherlands, divided since 1840 into the provinces of Noord-holland (north Holland) and Zuid-holland). It constitutes the flat, low-lying northwestern portion of the modern country. Holland originated in the early 12th century as a fief of Holy Roman Empire and was ruled by a dynasty of counts that traced its origin to the 9th century. These nobles had reemerged in the 10th century after Viking devastation of the coastal area had ended, and they proceeded to expand their territory of present Noord-Holland northward, at the expense of the Frisians, and eastward and southward, which involved them in a series of wars with the bishops of Utrecht. The name Holland was derived from the region around Dordrecht, which was known as Holtland(“wooden land”).
