Photographer's Note

An inuksuk is a man-made stone landmark or cairn, used by the Inuit for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for hunting grounds, or as a food cache. The word inuksuk means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person."

Inuksuks are increasingly serving as a mainstream Canadian national symbol. On July 13, 2005 Canadian military personnel erected an inuksuk on Hans Island, along with a plaque and a Canadian flag, as part of Canada's longstanding dispute with Denmark over the small Arctic island.

The inuksuk in this picture is located on the shores of Lake Huron.
