That’s correct, the third episode of Stories from Space has just aired – the subject, Indigenous Astronomy! Highlights include revitalization and recognition efforts and how Indigenous leaders and advocates are raising awareness of ancient traditions. Hat’s off to Cree astronomer William Buck for lighting the fire in my mind that led to this episode! And a shout out to the Siksika Blackfoot and Ininewuk Cree Nations, their partners at Rothney Astrophysical Observatory, and Native Skywatchers for their ongoing education and outreach efforts!

Where to hear the episode:

      1. I focused a lot on Cree and North American traditions here, but only scratched the surface. I want to some episodes dedicated to Mayan, Incan, Aztec, and other traditions (possibly one each) and see if I can’t find more on Inuit, Algonquin, Iroquoian, the list goes on!
