Polar Bear: Churchill Inukshuk


The Inukshuk, which means "likeness of person" was first used by the Inuit People to mark trails, indicate caches of food, locate nearby settlements as well as good places to hunt or fish. Most of the Canadian arctic is dominated year round by permafrost and only has a few natural landmarks which could be used for orientation, that is why Inukshuk are used as directional marker.

Depending on how the Inukshuk is built, in whichever specific pattern of stone stacking, that is how you can tell from a distance what each Inukshuk represents, (food, settlement, hunting grounds, etc).
