Indigenizing Astronomy: Cultural Perspectives on the Sky and the Future of Research

Constellations

Canadian Indigenous Astronomer Dr. Laurie Rousseau-Nepton is inviting you for an immersive journey into the First Nation of Canada’s perspective on our Universe. Myths and Legends often reveal a deep understanding of astronomical phenomenons from the physics concepts to the complex interaction between our environment on Earth, the seasons, and the movement of the celestial bodies. Ultimately aiming at reviving ancestral knowledge, she will also discuss different paths to indigenizing astronomy by transforming both our ways of talking about science, teaching, and conducting research.

Accompanying Dr. Rousseau-Nepton’s presentation, we will host the West Coast premiere of cultural and Indigenous short films produced by the One Sky Project.

Speaker: Laurie Rousseau-Nepton, Canada-France-Hawaii Observatory
