I’ve always thought inuksuit were found only in the Arctic, but I’ve recently learned of several findings in the High Colorawdough Desert and now, lo and behold, I’ve found one here in Western North Carolina!
This one seems damaged; as though most of it has been washed away by the creek leaving only one leg. Either that, or the Eastern Cherokee built their inuksuit to resemble some other human appendage.
I thought of informing the park authorities, but I didn’t like the idea of a bunch of archaeologists swarming around it, carefully cleaning it up with their little paintbrushes and disassembling it to haul it away to some sterile glass box in a museum somewhere, so I’m going to keep my mouth shut.
For more information on inuksuit, Wikipedia has an article and exciting images of the recent Colorawdough findings can be found here.
