Description:
Ancient symbols of Inuit culture traditionally used as landmarks and navigation aids, these stone statues represent a human form with outstretched arms and serves as a well-known symbol of northern hospitality and friendship.
Expanded Description:
This category is for collecting waypoints for Inukshuks.
The Inukshuk or Inuksuk (pronounced IN-OOK-SHOOK) meaning "in the image of man", are magnificent lifelike figures of stone which were erected by the Inuit people and are unique to the Canadian Arctic. Standing along Canada's most northern shores, they endure as eternal symbols of leadership, encouraging the importance of friendship and reminding us of our dependence upon one another.

In the Baffin region of Canada's Arctic, the traditional meaning of an Inukshuk was to act as a compass or guide for a safe journey. The Inukshuk, like ancient trackers, helped guide people seeking their way through the wilderness.
Erected to make the way easier and safer for those who follow, an Inukshuk represents safety and nourishment, trust and reassurance. The Inukshuk guided people across the frozen tundra and gave them hope in barren places to handle hardships they encountered. These primitive, stone images showed the way ahead... pointing you in the direction you wanted to go.
Instructions for Posting a Inukshuks Waymark:
To log a waypoint here I am and going to require that you have accurate co-ordinates for the Inukshuk in question and that to verify you have been to it you must place YOUR OWN photo of the Inukshuk with yourself in the pic next to the Inukshuk and/or I will accept a photo with your GPS unit held up in view with the Inukshuk. The former is preferable. I would ask that if there is any information available regarding this statue that you give a bit of a history on it and if it has guided historical figures of the past or had mention and significance to historical voyages you may like to mention it as well. Inukshuks are popping up all over the world as a fascination with Inuit culture becomes more widely known therefore Inukshuks that are typically outside of normal Inuit Territory will be accepted so long as the above criteria are met and that they are configured to be representative of an Inuit type Inukshuk.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
You must have visited the site personally to log on the site. I have set this category to Auto-approve but I will frequently screen the waymarks and logs to ensure they are relevant to the site and significant. Those that aren't will be removed.

There are many Inukshuks at Sculpture Point on Grand Marais. The natural weathering and splitting of the rocks here is perfect for building Inukshuks. Make one of your own, or enjoy those left behind by others.
