    here is the story


    Inukshuk, pronounced "in-ook-shook", are stone monuments erected by the Inuit, and used for centuries to guide them across one of the world's most desolate landscapes.

    As such, the Inukshuk are a tool for survival, and symbolic of a nomadic people - the Inuit - who built them as signposts providing direction and safety to travellers who followed.

    The efforts of an entire group were required to build these massive stone sculptures. Each stone is a separate entity, each supports, and is supported by, the one above and the one below it. The strength lies in its unity.

    The Inukshuk are the product of cooperation, revealing to each of us that as good as our individual efforts may be, together we can achieve even greater success.

    Its significance comes from its meaning as a whole. The stones, which make up the Inukshuk, are secured through balance. They are chosen for how well they fit together.

    The Inukshuk is a symbol of the human spirit. They recognize our ability to succeed with others, where we would fail alone. The Inukshuk serves as a reminder of the responsibility to invest our efforts today, towards building a better tomorrow.
