Southern African people have always had a deep and profound relationship with the cosmos.

In ancient times, they used stars to develop calendars for agriculture and to regulate their ceremonies. This video is part of an NRF/SAAO led Indigenous Astronomy Project which is sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology. It aims to communicate and reaffirm the significance of indigenous astronomy while raising awareness about the advances made by South Africa in the field of modern astrophysics.
