Storyboard Text

  • Why the Stars are in the Sky An Eskimo legend
  • That star the stairway from Earth to Sky.
  • That star is Orion the Hunter.
  • One day, Nanuk the bear was waylaid by a pack of fierce Eskimo hunting dogs and tried to run as fast as he could in order to lose them. He ran and he ran, but he could not shake them.
  • The chase had driven the animals close to the edge of the world. When they finally got their they plunged straight off of the edge and became stars.
  • Then the story goes on to talk about what stars and planets are to us and what they are to the Eskimos. It also talks about what we call the constellations and what they call the constellations. For example: Over on the other side of the sky, they can make out some stars in the shape of an oil lamp. On the horizon between the lamp and the caribou the Eskimos see stars like three steps carved out of snow. They call it the stairway from Earth to Sky, but we talk of Orion the Hunter.
