Inukshuk

I’m sure you’re wondering, what is a Inukshuk? Well, according to the Canadian Encyclopedia, it’s a figure made of piled stones or boulders constructed to communicate with humans throughout the Arctic. Perhaps best known as navigational aids for the Inuit in Canada and points north.

So reading this article tonight, entitled “The World Doesn’t Want Your Inukshuk” by Katherine Martinko at Treehugger, got me to thinking about these. While I haven’t come across many, I do remember finding one as we were driving along Lake Superior a couple of summers ago.

It also got me to thinking about the occasional rocks I pick up when on vacation, like around our cabin. Definitely food, or at least rocks, for thought.

Sincerely-
