Archaeoastronomy: American Indians, the Skies, and UFO's

Long before 1492 American Indian peoples were very familiar with the movement of planets, constellations, and the cycles of the Sun and Moon.  They built complex cultures using that knowledge and integrated it into their basic worldviews, traditions, material culture, religion, and mythology.  Dr. Paul Apodaca from Chapman University will expand upon American Indian peoples use of this knowledge and its incorporation and reinterpretations by non-native peoples.
