The Inukshuk (pronounced In-ook-shook) meaning “in the image of man”, are magnificent human-like figures of stone which were erected by the Inuit.  They stand along Canada & Alaska’s most northern shores, and are unique to the North America arctic.  They are made of rock slabs, large and small, and built into the shape of a person with their arms or legs out stretched or more traditionally, piles of well mapped-out-rocks.  The inukshuk has long been recognized as the “compass of the Arctic.”  They were early road signs, pre GPS or folding maps.
