Abstract
 
Description
View the night sky through an Indigenous perspective with this collection of Ininew (Cree) constellations and mythologies. These stories present a brief glimpse of the knowledge held by Indigenous people prior to first contact. Fly inside the Milky Way with Niska (the Goose). Chase Mista Muskwa (the Great Bear) along with Tepahkoop Pinesisuk (the Seven Birds). Above all else, pass these stories on to the next generation, so they will know the rich history, science and culture of the Ininew people.
