Ways of Seeing: Native Perspectives in Astronomy

  Abstract: While attending a cultural festival at the Wind River Reservation, I brought my telescope to share with the students and their parents. During our night sky navigation, I began to hear murmured stories that were unfamiliar to me. I was intrigued; so began my journey into the rich oral/written narratives of Northern Arapaho and Shoshone cultures. This presentation will share some of the stories, resources, and websites to further enhance the astronomy experience from a native perspective.
