The Project Gutenberg eBook of A Study of Siouan Cults, by James Owen Dorsey.Throughout history, the stars have provided humans with ever more information about our world, enabling increasingly accurate systems of navigation in addition to fuelling some of the greatest scientific controversies. What information animals have evolved to extract from a starry sky and how they do so, is a topic of study that combines the practical and theoretical challenges faced by both astronomers and field biologists. In this review, we assess the stars as a visual stimulus that conveys directional information, and compare the bodies of evidence available for the different stellar orientation strategies proposed to date. In this context, we also introduce new technologies that may aid in the study of stellar orientation, and suggest how field experiments may be used to characterize the mechanisms underlying stellar orientation. At the beginning of astronomical night, as the last solar skylight drops below the horizon, the moon, lunar skylight and stars become the brightest celestial references. After the moon has set, night-active animals are soon left with only the stars. This array of bright points gradually moves across the sky as a function of latitude and date, following a schedule that is similar to that of the solar day.
