Aleutian (Aleutians)

Aleutian is an alternate name for the Aleut tribe of Alaska. The name "Aleutian" is somewhat ambiguous and has occasionally been a source of confusion, since it is sometimes used to refer only to the Aleut people of the Aleutian Islands, and other times used to refer to all Aleut people.
