About the SkyTellers series

SkyTellers are ten Native American myths and legends that investigate the reason for day and night, why we have seasons, the origin of the stars and other wondrous phenomena of our night sky. Each narrative is accompanied by the story that scientists tell today. More about SkyTellers, including credits, hands-on activities, and background information on each topic is available at
