Stone Men

Stone Men

This summer I went on a trip to Canada. We visited our relative’s cottage. On the way there we saw a lot of little men made of stones on the side of the road. Their actual name is Inukshuk and they have an interesting story. They are made to look like people which is what the name means. Native people in Northern Canada made them for marking places or marking where they have been. They are built from stones found on their travels. I liked them so much, I got a small stone man from a gift shop near the cottage.
