Sky Wise: The Legendary Sky Project (South Slave)
TAWBAS and partners from across the South Slave region are investigating the possibility of developing a project similar to the work of The Legendary Sky Project. The new project will focus on communities in the South Slave area.
The Legendary Sky Project was initiated by Astronomy North as part of its education and outreach initiatives. It is dedicated to the collection and preservation of northern sky knowledge and heritage in the NWT. Launched in 2009 as part of the International Year of Astronomy celebrations in the NWT, The Legendary Sky Project aims to explore the nature, culture and wonder of Canada’s northern sky and to integrate local knowledge of the sky into the curriculum at the community level.
