Our fundamental concern here is not how closely American Indian epistemology conforms to that of the Western world. Nor are we primarily concerned with whether or not American Indian systems of astronomy and cosmology constitute a "science." ...we are exploring, in a comparative perspective, the traditions of thought and logic whereby American Indian cultures in the tropics organize cycles and phenomena perceived in their terrestrial and celestial environments.
