Although this stone structure was just created for fun, in another time an Inukshuk was used in the day to day life of Native North Americans.

A Inukshuk Symbol is being used for the 2010 Winter Olympics which will be starting soon in Whistler, BC

“An inuksuk is a stone landmark or cairn built by humans, used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. These structures are found from Alaska to Greenland. This region, above the Arctic Circle, is dominated by the tundra biome, containing areas with few natural landmarks.

The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for hunting grounds, or as a food cache. The Inupiat in northern Alaska used inuksuit to assist in the herding of caribou into contained areas for slaughter Inuksuit vary in shape and size, with deep roots in the Inuit culture." from Wikipedia

    This is the symbol of the winter olympics which will be starting soon in Whistler, BC. Nice shot.

  • Yes I thought it might generate some interest and for those who did not know the back ground it will make some sense. Thanks for your visit and I will add the connection to the blurb. B-)
