Democracy Now made a mistake in their title, one that should be corrected. 
"Inuit" is already a plural, you are "from the Inuit", or you are an "Inuk" 
singularly. "Inuits" is like saying "mooses", or better perhaps would be 
"Welshes" or something like that.

What they said makes no literal sense. At least they stopped using the term 
"Eskimo"-- something, unlike Indian in either Canada or the US, almost 
exclusively used by settlers and not the people themselves.
