Inuit built Inuksuit (plural of inukshuk), piles of rock, to act “act like humans” in the arctic.

An inukshuk could help an Inuit hunter in many ways. Like humans they communicated important messages – where to find good hunting grounds for walrus, seal or whales, or point to a good landing site for a kayak. Sometimes they showed the way home, or warned of danger, such as deep snow or strong undercurrents.

The shape and size depended on the kind of rock, and how they were piled on top of each other. These were sometimes huge boulders and the inukshuk was enormous and could be seen from many miles away.
