Night Skies Over Turtle Island: Indigenous perspectives on the cosmos

Explore the night sky from the perspective of the Indigenous people of North America in this free U of T astronomy talk. You’ll hear a panel speak about how Indigenous peoples of North America view the night sky; how that knowledge is enhancing our understanding of astrophysics and science; and you’ll discover the constellations and sky knowledge of Indigenous peoples.

Plus, you can explore the night sky for yourself through U of T telescopes, and through a live planetarium show presented by a U of T astronomer. Telescope viewing is weather-permitting.
