Miller will give a free talk on “Native American Skies” at the Library Community Room on Saturday, Jan. 13, at 3 p.m. Miller will share his passion for astronomy and Native American cultures by relating how the Native Americans viewed the night sky and other cosmic events. “The night sky was their HD, 3D, big screen TV…” Courtney says.

He is the author of a 7 book series, The Cherokee Chronicles, which has been praised by the Native American community.
