Application of indigenous knowledge systems in cultural astronomy in Kigezi Region
Abstract: Astronomy is one of the original branches of science. Thus the study of the stars and their
cultural significance is still a living practice as our relationship with the cosmos shifts and changes. The night sky has inspired humans for all of our history and before, and that relationship will continue into the future. However, to date, there is scanty or no record of Cultural Astronomy in Uganda for the Kigezi sub-region. This study therefore is seeking for application of indigenous knowledge systems in cultural astronomy in Kigezi Region. This project is funded by Kabale University (June 2022-June 2023).
