Inuksuk

Inuksuk Sculpture :

The word inuksuk means “something which acts for or performs the function of a person”. The word comes from the morphemes inuk (“person”) and -suk(“ersatz” or “substitute”). It is pronounced inutsuk in Nunavik and the southern part of Baffin Island

Inuksuit continue to serve as an Inuit cultural symbol. For example, an inuksuk is shown on the flag and coat of arms of the Canadian territory of Nunavut, and the flag of Nunatsiavut.
