Inukshuk ~ Meaning:'In the likeness of a human','someone was here' and 'you are on the right path'. Inukshuks are man-made landmarks of stone used by the peoples of the Arctic region of North America to point out the right directions along highways, lakes and in the wilderness. The Inukshuks guided people across the frozen tundra and helped them to handle the different hardships that they encountered there.
An inukshuk can be small or large, a single rock or several rocks balanced on top of each other, round boulders or flat. They are built from whatever stones that are at hand and often sculptured to look like a human. Each one is unique. The arrangement of stones indicates the purpose of the marker. The directions of arms or legs could indicate the direction of an open channel for navigation, or a valley for passage through the mountains. An inukshuk without arms, or with antlers affixed to it, would act as a marker for a cache of food.
If you are curious of how an inukshuk looks like then chech them out on 'google images'.
