New Inuit Inukshuk Winter Olympics Emblem Causes Controversy

It seems that the new emblem of the 2010 Winter Olympics which happens to be a multi-colored Inuit inukshuk is causing controversy. Some Inuit are happy with the decision while some are not claiming that Inuit elders should have been consulted first for the significance of the Inuit inukshuk. Some First Nations groups in BC Canada also claim that there should have been more Northwest influence on the emblem.
