Incredible inukshuk built at Crescent Valley

“Those rocks could not have been moved when our grandfather Jacob pioneered the farm in 1905 with a team of oxen,” Ray says.

It may not be the biggest inukshuk ever built, but it is one of the heaviest. Crescent Valley’s Ray Kosiancic provided this photo of the stone marker, recently erected by his brother Jake and nephew Bernie and estimated to weigh over 40 tons. After doing some road building and land clearing, the Kosiancics didn’t know what to do with these big rocks, but Bernie’s daughter Crystal, who has made many small inukshuks, had the idea to create a big one. “Those rocks could not have been moved when our grandfather Jacob pioneered the farm in 1905 with a team of oxen,” Ray says. “The one big lower flat rock weighs 10 tons, the maximum the big Cat backhoe can lift.” The new landmark can be viewed along Highway 6 across from the Kosiancic farm entrance.
