For centuries the Apsáalooke or Crow people of southeastern Montana have kept a careful watch on the heavens above them—particularly the cycles and movements of the stars, sun, moon and planets. Their interpretations of these cosmic phenomena have shaped the principles by which the Crow people live, providing a sense of right and wrong and an attendant set of values and ethics. This presentation will explore the Crow cultural concepts of astronomy.
