Reading the stars: the science of Aboriginal astronomy

Join astronomer and Senior Research Fellow in this session on observing the sun, moon and stars.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people developed a number of practical ways to observe the sun, moon and stars to inform navigation and calendars, predict weather and inform law and social structure.

Learn about the science that is encoded in these oral traditions and material culture with Dr Duane Hamacher - as astronomer and Senior Research Fellow at the Monash University Indigenous Studies Centre - who specialises in Indigenous astronomical and geological knowledge in Australia and the Pacific .
