An Inuksuk (inukshuk), a powerful symbol of the Inuit and the Arctic, is a structure of so many loose stones laid upon one another, each one being unique. The meaning of a specific inuksuk depends on the intent of the person who built it. Inuksuit are a nuanced, complex and vital form of communication.
