Inukshuks: blocky robots of the North.


There’s an Inuktitut-style statue outside the Mackenzie Hotel, right across from the post office.

It’s about eight feet tall, and it’s a pretty interesting thing to see. Kind of childlike in it’s simplicity but also meaningful.

Instead of representing a famous person — whether a politician or humanitarian or general or what have you — the Inukshuk merely says “people were here.”

I think it’s what Neil Armstrong should have placed on the moon.
