Inukshuks

Inukshuk is the Inuit word meaning “In the Image of Man.”  Groups of stacked stones usually in human form have been used by the peoples of the North for thousands of years.  Built along treeless horizons, these landmarks helped travelers navigate on land and water.  They also helped the Inuit people herd caribou.  These beacons of the North have now been adapted as symbols of friendship, reminding us that today as in yesteryear, we all depend on one another.
