Under the Same Stars: Minwaadiziwin – Science North Portable Planetarium Show

Celebrate National Indigenous Day!

The First People of Northern Ontario were scientists and innovators, carefully tracking and moving with the seasons, and creating inventions that allowed them to survive in the northern forests of our province. With this close connection to the natural world, the Indigenous People developed a strong culture, rooted in respect for the environment.

Through this portable planetarium experience, visitors will learn about the Indigenous worldview and sit at the fire with two people who are connected to the traditional ways. They will leave the planetarium with an understanding of common constellations visible in the night sky and the Anishinaabe stories that define them.

Sign-up at the Visitor Centre. 30 people maximum/presentation.

Presentation times:

10:00-10:45, 11:00-11:45, 12:00-12:45, 1:00-1:45, 2:00-2:45, 3:00-3:45, 4:00-4:45
