An inukshuk is a stone landmark or cairn built by humans and used by the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America.
In the Inuit language, inukshuk (which is the singular of inuksuit), means "in the likeness of a human." They are monuments of unworked stone that the Inuit use for communication and survival. Their traditional meaning is "Someone was here" or "You are on the right path."
