"Astronomy is known to only a few select men among the Mescalero Apache. While anyone may be familiar with a few constellations, only specialists know the appearance of the sky throughout a year, or a lifetime. Only they know precisely how the timing is done and how it can be structured. Ceremonies and prayers are planned around the sky's activity. Instead of names, stars are described by their shapes, colors, intensities or seasonal positions. This Mescalero father is teaching his boys astronomy through observation, which is their people's way." - Susan Kliewer
