An Inuksuk is a stone landmark. In artic regions, there are few natural landmarks. so the people needed landmarks to know where they were as they trekked across the snow and ice, in search of food. So, the early people made landmarks out of piles of stones. You could see them from some distance away. they were a form of communication. A particular design might tell a good place to fish ro others would alert to hiddden storages of food.


Scrimshaw was a famous technique used by the Inuits. The inuits engraved pictures that told stories in ivory and then rubbed the carvings with lampblack.
