Sky Watchers of Africa
For Generations, Africans have viewed the heavens as a vital part of the natural world. Among African traditions, the mysteries of the heavens are of the same importance as those of human existence. Africans have long observed the stars in their search for wisdom and practical knowledge. They used the sky as a guide to bind their societies and cultures, for laying out their homes and cities, and making calendars to organize their time.
The sky also shaped their spiritual lives as the Stars, the Sun, and the Moon each played important roles in many African ceremonies, and offered answers to the deepest human questions about life and death, told in tales and myths passed down through the generations.
Skywatchers of Africa relates these sky stories of Africa, realizing that all humans — past, present, and future, both nearby and distant — are our brothers and sisters, sharing our needs and our skies.
