|Inuksuk on Fogo Island|
The word is pronounced "inuckshuck".
I really don't know much about them apart from their being a form of traveller's guide. Many are seen on the sides of the highways in all provinces of Canada. Or on top of mountains. They are uniquely Canadian from the Inuit culture. Read all about them here.
I've not seen them in the U.S. but an American reader may enlighten me on this.
I just love them. Every time I see one as I drive by, and there are quite a few around here, I smile and wave and say hi.
The one above is from the topmost point of Fogo Island in Newfoundland. which Grandgirl and I climbed a few years back. This is also the site of one of the four corners of the flat earth as designated by the Flat Earth Society.
See? I'm not just a flibberdee-jibbet tossing out the diamonds and stones of my life on a regular basis.
I can larn you too, so I can!
