Coming up on March 28th, 2022 the McDonald Institute and Queen’s University Office of Indigenous Initiatives is presenting Red Sky Performance’s Trace, with a Two-Eyed Seeing Astronomers’ discussion to follow at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.  Joining us in this episode to talk about this event, its inspirations and the collaborations that are making it happen is Dr. Mark Richardson, Education and Outreach Officer at the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute.

We are also joined by the western and Indigenous Two-Eyed Seeing Astronomy event speakers, Professor Dave Hanes of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy at Queen’s University and Melanie Demers, instructor of Indigenous Astronomy from Six Nations and raised in Aylmer Quebec.  Demers and Hanes discuss the meaning of western and Indigenous astronomy and the contributions that seeing through ‘two (Western & Indigenous) eyes’ can make toward greater understanding of our universe.
