One of the things I like to do is to explore new cultures. I am always looking for new inspiration for my books.

So today I’d like to share a story with you about The Dogon Tribe.

The Dogon tribe are a poor tribe in southern Mali.
The Dogon have a remarkable knowledge about Astronomy.
Told astronomers in 1946-1950 about a star they called Po.
The Dogon have no astrologist tools and Po can not be seen by the name eye. It wasn’t photographed until 1970. So how do the Dogon know? They told explores about the rings of Saturn, the four moons of Jupiter and many other topics. The question is how.
The Dogon claimed to be visited by an amphibious race from out of space that related the wisdom to them.
Of course critics don’t believe this. The dogons also talked about a star that has yet to be discovered by astrologists. A star that orbits Sirius, they call it emme ya.
Will we believe them when we discover this star???
For more info on this amazing tribe do a google and you will find a lot more info than what I am giving you here.
