For generations, the Inuit have been creating impressive stone markers on the Artic Landscape. Inuksuk means "acting in the capacity of a human." They serve many functions, including guiding travellers, warning of danger, assisting hunters and marking places of reverence.
This Inuksuk was dedicated on National Aboriginal day, June 21, 1997, in the presence of Their Excellencies, The Right Honourable Roméo Leblanc Governor General of Canada and Mrs Diana Fowler Leblanc.
