HMM 04 – 08 – 24

Today we are taking a hiatus from our regular programming to bring you an eclipse special. On this episode of the Hudson Mohawk Magazine,

We begin with Haudenosaunee Storyteller and Cultural Educator Perry Ground telling a story to explain a solar eclipse, from a recording by Jody Cowan.

Then, Brea Barthel interviews Dr. Valerie Rapson, astrophysicist at SUNY Oneonta, to explain what creates an eclipse.

Later on, retired meteorologist Hugh Johnson is interviewed by Brea Barthel and Lennox Apudo for more understanding of eclipses.

After that, Vinny DamaPoleto recounts his experience of traveling to South Carolina in 2017 to view the last total solar eclipse in the USA.

Finally, we finish with another Indigenous story about the eclipse from Perry Ground.
