SIRIUS B and the DOGON TRIBE
Does anyone have any theories as to how this tribe knew of a distant star (not "discovered" until 1970)and one which is the basis of their religious beliefs...that they are dsecendants of "fish people" originating from the unseen and hidden star Sirius B...?

Fascinating...

Some links amongst others...

Re: SIRIUS B and the DOGON TRIBE
Well one thing is that people of way old were far more advanced than we know. Maybe even further advanced than we are now. And some of that knowledge has been handed down thourgh the years. One reason its been writen on the rocks there. Which makes it easier to keep it right.

Re: SIRIUS B and the DOGON TRIBE
I find it very strange that with tales such as these that no serious investigation has been undertaken etc...in other ancient societies a knowledge of astrological cycles etc were apparent but I guess they could be attributes to observation but HOW could a group of people KNOW that a hidden star existed...?

The Dogon Tribe


The Dogon Tribe lives in the Homburi Mountains near Timbuktu in the southwestern portion of the Sahara Desert in Africa. Central to their religious teachings is knowledge about the Sirius star system, which includes a star which is invisible to the naked eye and, in fact, so difficult to observe -- even through a telescope -- that no known photographs were taken of it until 1970. The Dogon, however, do no claim a superior technology, but say they received their knowledge by visitors to the earth from another star system.

According to < [link to www.mm2000.nu] the star the Dogon described is Sirius B, apparently a white dwarf star. Astronomers of the Modern breed had begun to suspect something as early as 1844, based on irregularities in the movement of Sirius A. By 1862, a faint companion star was finally detected, and it was assumed that its extreme density and heaviness was sufficient to exert an influence on Sirius A.

Long before this, of course, The Dogon had already named Sirius B, “Po Tolo”, a name which includes the word for star (tolo) and “po”, the name of the smallest seed known to them. They had in fact described the star’s size by noting that it was, “the smallest thing there is.” They also had recognized that it was both white and “the heaviest star”.

The Dogon were also able to describe its elliptical orbit with Sirius A at one foci of the ellipse (an accurate description), its orbital period of 50 years (the actual figure is 50.04 +/- 0.09 years), and the fact the star rotated on its own axis (it does). Significantly, The Dogon also described a third star in the Sirius system, which they called “Emme Ya” (“Sorghum Female”), and which contained a single satellite in orbit around Emme.

The Dogon idea of their being a Sirius C, aka Emme Ya, was not accorded any real respect until 1995, when two French Astronomers published their results, after years of study, of what was apparently a small, red-dwarf star within the Sirius star system [1] The conclusion was based on perturbations in the orbits that could not be explained by any other means.
