"Overhead, on any night when the moon is nearly full, you may be lucky enough to see cottony cumulus clouds drifting across the face of cool light beaming down. Over the millennia, Native peoples have been moved by this vision, framed by a sky spangled with stars and planets. There is something about the night sky that touches a place deep inside, connecting us to all who have stood in the darkness and gazed at the sky dome." —from the Preface to Keepers of the Night
