Event Details

Legends of the Northern Sky For thousands of years, humanity has gazed at the stars in wonder in a search for understanding, truth, and insight. With that big a canvas spread out before us every night, it is no wonder that the stars served as a foundation for exploring human nature, a mechanism for looking back at ourselves. Take a journey with the Indigenous peoples of the western plains of Canada and share the wisdom conveyed by the stars. The Indigenous people of North America connected with the night sky in fundamental ways that resonated with their world. In Legends of the Northern Sky, we learn and appreciate their stories in the stars and in turn, learn a little bit more about the spirit that connects us all.

This showing is recommended for college, general audience, or grades 4-12. The subject areas include nature, cosmology, history of astronomy, the solar system, seasons, and night sky.
