We've been learning about Inuksuk! What fun.
In case you don't know what an inuksuk is....It's a Canadian indiginous place marker.
They have been used for thousands of years by the Inuit, Canadian Arctic people, to mark an important location.
An inuksuk (pronounced Ee nook sook) is used to mark a spot where surplus food has been stored, or to tell about a prime location for hunting or fishing. They also were used for marking a good resting place, or to indicate a residence.
Inuksuit (the plural form of inuksuk) were originally built in unique shapes to give specific meaning. But, more recently, they have come to resemble the shape of stone people.
We built an inuksuk in our backyard.
First we collected up the required stones
Next, we decided on a good way to arrange them.
