Inukshuk Sculptures

inukshukStone figures built to resemble humans, Inukshuks can be found along Canada’s northern shores. Originally built as landmarks to aid in navigation, the Inukshuk has been adopted today as a symbol to remind us of our dependence upon each other and the value of strong relationships.
inukshuk-mapInukshuk, pronounced [ in-ook-shook ], are stone monuments erected in the image of humans. One of their purposes was to communicate direction in the harsh and desolate Arctic. As such they were a tool of survival, and symbolic of the unselfish act of a nomadic people – the Inuit – who built them as signposts to make the way easier and safer for those who followed.

The hands of many and the efforts of an entire group were required to build these massive stone sculptures. They are the result of a consensus of purpose, of focused action by a group united in its goal and labor. The Inukshuk are the product of cooperation, teaching us that as good as our individual efforts may be, together we can do even greater things.

Each stone is a separate entity. Each supports, and is supported by, the one above and the one below it. No one piece is any more or less important than another. Its strength lies in its unity. Its significance comes from its meaning as a whole. What is true about the Inukshuk is true about people. Each individual entity alone has significance.

The stones which make up the Inukshuk are secured through balance. They are chosen for how well they fit together. The Inukshuk celebrates our working together. It continues to remind us of our interdependent responsibilities to invest our efforts today, to direct a better way for all of us tomorrow.
