Inunnguaq – Signposts of the North

Category: Places


Photo and caption by Kiat Teo

The scene was capture during night photography; the wind was howling at 60-80 miles / hour with snow sweeping across in total darkness. My wearing glasses immediately frosted with layers of ices, with zero visibility. I set-up my tripod quickly and took aim at the rocks. An inuksuk-like monument in the form of a human being is called an Inunnguaq (an imitation of a person). The monument was made of unworked stones that were used by the Inuit for communication and it means "You are on the right path."

Location: Churchill, Canada
