Inuksuit: Inukshuk, Inuksuk, Inunnguaq (Pointing The Way)

Inukshuk

“The mysterious stone figures known as inuksuit can be found throughout the circumpolar world. Inukshuk, the singular of inuksuit, means “in the likeness of a human” in the Inuit language.”

“The Inuit make inuksuit in different forms for a variety of purposes: as navigation or directional aids, to mark a place of respect or memorial for a beloved person, or to indicate migration routes or places where fish can be found.

Although most inuksuit appear singly, sometimes they are arranged in sequences spanning great distances…”  INUKSHUK
