Long Description:
L'Inukshuk est un amas de pierres évoquant la forme humaine et qui parsème l'Arctique. Il sert de point de repère pour aider les Inuits à trouver leur chemin dans le désert blanc.

Ces pierres de taille qui ont servi à la construction de la 4e église de Sainte-Croix (église actuelle) proviennent de Saint-Marc-des-Carrières et furent acheminées par un chemin de glace sur le Saint-Laurent.

[En]

The Inukshuk is a pile of stones evoking the human form and sprinkles the Arctic. It serves as a benchmark to help Inuit find their way into the White Desert.

These stones that were used in the construction of the fourth church of Sainte-Croix (current church) come from Saint-Marc-des-Carrières and were routed through a path of ice on the St. Lawrence river.
