Inuit Standing Stones: Environmental Art

Another great video from Video Sift:
The Inuit natives of The Arctic practiced this art as a way of expressing themselves, leaving messages, warnings and other information to travelers. I believe they still do.

The custom itself is called Inukshuk. It's a word that means "thing that can act in the place of a human being."
