When you look at the stars, what stories come to mind? We’re used to seeing Greek and Roman stories when we look at the sky: Orion, Cassiopeia, Ursa Major. However, cultures all over the world—including Indigenous nations throughout Canadians—created their own constellations to make sense of the world around them, reflecting the stories that were important to them.
Discover the star stories of the peoples of Turtle Island, who have lived on this land for thousands of years, and understand their significance to guide, teach and inspire.
