Lee, and James Spotted Thunder. Educator leads: Michael Connelly and Jillian Stately.

Weaving together Indigenous D(L)akota Astronomy & NASA science this work offers insights from both world-views.
As described by Mi’kmaw elders:
"Two-Eyed Seeing is learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing, and from the other eye with the strengths of Western knowledges and ways of knowing, and to use both these eyes for the benefit of all."
