Patricia Forster Colloquium: WA Aboriginal Astronomy

The Australia Telescope National Facility Colloquium
15:00-16:00 Wed 10 Jul 2024

Kensington/Teams

Abstract

Traditionally, Aboriginal people used objects in the sky to establish direction, guide navigation, predict seasons and as calendars for planning social life. Their narratives linked objects in the sky to life and landforms on earth and frequently included a moral element. This talk will draw on less publicized aspects of WA Aboriginal Astronomy from my review of the topic published by Cambridge University Press for the Astronomical Society of Australia.
