Re: the most northerly redskins before you hit eskimo territory.

From the Wikipedia page on eskimo:

"No universal replacement term for Eskimo, inclusive of all Inuit and Yupik people, is accepted across the geographical area inhabited by the Inuit and Yupik peoples. The primary reason that Eskimo is considered derogatory is the false perception that it means "eaters of raw meat"."

Re-employing a term never properly replaced and pejorative only because of a misconception is a useful way to avoid absurdities like "the area where the people who call themselves "the people" in their own language meets a different area where different people also call themselves "the people" in a different language".
