Tribal Warrior and the Science Teachers Association NSW will be bringing you an Aboriginal Astronomy lesson cruising on Sydney Harbour as part of 7 Decades in 7 Days, a week-long celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Science Teachers Association for NSW in and around National Science Week.  

First Nations People have a long history with the land, waters and skies of this continent that stretches over 60,000 plus years.  They observed and mapped the sun, the moon and stars to inform navigation, calendars and predict weather patterns long before European settlement on these shores. 

The knowledge handed down from generation to generation through song, dance and oral tradition has kept alive the lessons learnt from ancestral elders.  

Join us for an Aboriginal Astronomy lesson onboard a 3 hour Tribal Warrior Harbour Cruise as we are offered a glimpse into the knowledge held by the oldest astronomers in this world.
