Blue Moon Inuksuit

If you look carefully on the horizon you can see a small inukshuk (pl. inuksuit). This one is a small stone marker created in the shape of a window for hunters or travelers on the land to look through.  Inuit use these to point the way to important hunting or fishing locations or to show the way home.

This is the inukshuk in front of our camp.  The ones that you see with arms and legs are a relatively new creation, but they have come to symbolize the north.
