Hope I’m lucky enough to catch Rosanna Deerchild this week on CBC Radio’s Unreserved to hear more from Wilfred Buck about Cree astronomy.
The show airs Sunday at 7 p.m. and Tuesday at 1 p.m. on Radio One. On Sirius Channel 169, it runs Saturdays and Sundays at 7 p.m. , Tuesdays 1 p.m. and Thursdays 4 a.m, but Rosanna says the link will be available later on the website at cbc.ca/unreserved.
