About the photo

The site’s cover photo was taken in 2008 in Igloolik, Nunavut; it depicts an Inukshuk. A┬átimeless guidepost varying in design and shape, the Inukshuk has many meanings, from marker of sacred places to a navigation tool and/or an aid for hunting and fishing.

Here it is being used as a guidepost: both as a marker of where humans have been as well as an indication of the way forward.
