Note: A note from the artist, “This is during the summer. Whatever paths they cross, they have made Inukshuks, as they have other peoples trails behind them, so as to let them know which path they have led. This was how my father used to be, as I remember. Inukshuks were very useful back then, as they were the only means of direction. They are happy without any boredom, as it was their lifestyle.”
