Today we had a family brunch and since the sun was shining we wanted to take advantage of it before the rain came back. As we were walking we came across these rock statues, referred to as “Inuksuit.” (Inuksuit is the plural form of Inukshuk.)
The Inuit make inuksuit in different forms for a variety of purposes: as navigation or directional aids, to mark a place of respect or memorial for a beloved person, or to indicate migration routes or places where fish can be found.
My dad added his own Inukshuk to the group. (His is the large one at the back.)
While we were not sure what the purpose of these specific Inuksuit was, I appreciate the beauty that they bring to the landscape.
