Description

Colonization has greatly reduced the extent to which Indigenous astronomy is presently known and shared. Much sky lore has become lost or fragmented, and the connections between stories, night sky observations, and their relevance is not as obvious as it once was. A detrimental spiral has ensued with many Western-trained scientists being reluctant to share sky lore out of fear of being misunderstood, disrespected, and dismissed.
