The First People 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 country. With this close connection to the natural world, the Indigenous People of Canada developed a strong culture, rooted in respect for the environment. "Under the Same Stars: Minwaadiziwin" aims to give visitors a chance to learn about the Indigenous worldview and sit at the fire with two people who are connected to the traditional ways. Visitors will leave the planetarium with an understanding of common constellations visible in the night sky and the Anishinaabe stories that define them. Minwaadiziwin is an Ojibwe term which refers to the hope for all living things to lead a good life. As we are all on this planet together and sit under the same stars, we hope for a good life for all.
