Safety, Indigenous Wisdom Illuminate Rare Total Solar Eclipse Crossing North America on April 8

North America will witness a rare celestial event on Monday: a total solar eclipse. As the moon positions itself between the sun and Earth, casting a shadow on our planet, millions will watch the sky darken like the onset of dawn or dusk.

The event's distinction lies in the totality of its path, spanning from Mexico to Canada, as well as its profound cultural significance, especially for Indigenous people.

Thanks to technology like cameras and live streaming, even if you cannot view the solar eclipse in one of the optimal spots along the path, you can still experience the eclipse with others from all over the world. Eclipses have been important to cultures throughout history, so this gives a chance to connect with that history and appreciate the wonders of the universe together.
