Inuksuk (also called an Inukshuk) is a man-made stone landmark
or cairn, used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other
peoples of the Arctic region of North America, from Alaska to Greenland.
This region, above the Arctic Circle, is dominated by the tundra
biome, containing areas with few natural landmarks, as such, the
inuksuk is used for navigation, a point of reference, a marker for
hunting grounds, and as a food cache.
