An Inuksuk is a stone landmark or cairn built by humans, used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. These structures are found from Alaska to Greenland.
The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, or to mark a food cache.
The word "inuksuk" means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person".
These inuksuks are miniatures, most from 2"-4" tall and glued. Examples are below......if you want a certain size please contact me. These are all made with rocks from the seashore of Grand Etang, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
