The word inuksuk means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person".
The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, places of veneration, drift fences used in hunting or to mark a food cache.[ The Inupiat in northern Alaska used inuksuit to assist in the herding of caribou into contained areas for slaughter.Varying in shape and size, the inuksuit have longtime roots in the Inuit culture.
