Join David Koerner in an exploration of ways of seeing: “Sky watching is enriched by knowing the cultural perspectives of indigenous communities. Native relationships to Earth and Sky challenge western ideas of a “mechanical universe” in which humans struggle to control nature as a machine. Indigenous frameworks, instead, see a reciprocal relationship with a “living universe,” one that is illustrated by sky stories like the Paiute explanation for the North Star. This outlook brings an added dimension to our view of the night sky and is pertinent in times of self-inflicted environmental crisis.”
