I'm Iñupiaq from Alaska. I love my culture and I love who Iam. And no I've never met another Alaskan native/Eskimo who's offended by "Eskimo". Grew up around a whole culture of people who was never offended by it, and refers to itself as "eskimo". So stop with that! Also, Iñupiaqs are not Inuits!

How long does it take to build an igloo and how long do they last? Sorry if this is offensive but I've always wanted to know

They last all winter of course. I've never made one I live in a 2 story house haha. That's old school ways hasn't been practiced on thousands of years. I think people still build them for fun, but their dangerous and collapse and suffocate people so public safety's against them lol.

Don't you prefer the word Inuit to Eskimo?
