Ancient Observatories, Timeless Knowledge
Found this site a bit ago:
http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/2005/na //

One of Sun-Earth Day's main goals is to provide an opportunity for you to learn more about the Sun's connection to the Earth through images, cultural parallels and activities that Native Americans have used to share Sun-Earth science through several generations.

Biographies showcases Native American members of the NASA community who represent a variety of expertise and cultural backgrounds.

Lakota Parallels provides you with information that directly relates NASA Sun-Earth concepts to traditional Lakota knowledge handed down for generations through song, dance, ceremonies and traditional story telling.

We invite you to explore "In Focus" containing a growing list of cultural parallels, scientific connections and articles. Your input to this growing section of our site is welcome.

....

Thought fellow DU'ers may enjoy it. The Lakota Parallels section delves into how they used the sun as a guide and their traditions surrounding it.
