Name

“Lakota Star Knowledge” is a 27-minute film which links the Greco-Roman view of constellations with that of traditional Lakota culture. It was directed by filmmaker Sam Hearst with the assistance of CAIRNS (The Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies) under the direction of Dr. Craig Howe, and with additional support from Oglala Lakota College.

The film features Dr. Howe and middle school students from Spring Creek School on the Rosebud Reservation. The film was funded by NASA. DVDs are available for purchase.
