Fort Saskatchewan resident Chris Robertson is not impressed with the "racially insensitive" Edmonton football club name.
The Edmonton Eskimos have been a storied football team since 1949, with the name reportedly dating back to 1892.
Tradition is something Robertson says does not play a role in the name, making his point clear that it's offensive to the people of the north.
"We should be referring to Canadians by their proper name and Edmonton Eskimos is wrong,"
In previous cases, the term Eskimo has been used to combine two categories of northern aboriginal people together, the Yupik and Inuit.
"We want to basically go to a stadium and be proud of our region. If we're doing something offensive like using the name Eskimos, that needs to stop."
Other sports teams continue to use the name including the Abitibi Eskimos and the Cambridge Eskimos hockey clubs.
According to the Cambridge dictionary, the term Eskimo is described as "a member of a race of people who live in the cold northern areas of North America, Greenland and Siberia."
The term Eskimo has been unofficially referred to as a person who eats raw meat.
Robertson did add that the team could be named based on the nearby river and mountains. He plans to meet with Edmonton mayor Don Iveson to discuss the topic.
