Kumeyaay cosmology was traditionally intertwined with ceremonies, harvest & hunts, burning schedules and the acquisition of spiritual power. Personal conduct was subject to cosmological constraints and rewards. Cosmology was so important that Spanish priests and subsequent U.S. government agents worked hard to repress and expunge the beliefs from Kumeyaay society. This monograph provides a partial glimpse of the Kumeyaay cosmology with worldview, observatories, constellations and stories. Includes modern interpretations of the calendar.
