Hunting Caribou with Inukshuiit

The Inuit (Eskimos) are known to have hunted Caribou, which is the Canadian word for reindeer, with stone Inukshuiit (singular Inukshuk), or stone figures that look like humans.  These Inukshuiit were set up in a funnel like pattern to channel the charibou to a hillside or enclosure, where the Caribou met the hunters.  (Link)
