When you drive through Northern Ontario, build your own Inukshuk! (Pronounced In-ook-shook) They are stone monuments erected in the image of humans. One of their purposes was to communicate direction in the harsh and desolate Arctic. They were a tool for survival, and symbolic of the unselfish acts of a nomadic people – the Inuit – who built them as signposts to make the way easier and safer for those who followed.
