Halkare, Ganesh and Vahia, Mayank and Orchiston, Wayne (2016) Astronomy of Some Indian Tribes. In: 9th International Conference on Oriental Astronomy (ICOA-9 2016), 15 Nov - 18 Nov 2016, Pune, India.


Abstract

Some Indian tribes are known to have lived isolated lives over many millennia and developed their own perspectives on astronomy. Here we report the study of four Indian tribes from central India, namely the Gonds, Banjaras, Kolams and Korku. We show that the broad philosophy of their approach to astronomy was similar but the details of their perception vary significantly.
