"This book is an outgrowth of Native Skywatchers research and programming ... We seek to address the crisis of the loss of the indigenous star knowledge, specifically the Dakota and Ojibwe who are the native peoples of Minnesota ... Together, we have created two astronomically accurate and culturally important star maps, Ojibwe Giizhig Anung Masinaa'igan - Ojibwe Sky Star Map and Makoce Wicanhpi Wowapi - D(L)akota Sky Star Map, which were first disseminated to regional educators at a Native Skywatchers Middle School Teacher workshop in June 2012"--Introduction.
