Sharing Session : 'Buruj di Alam Melayu'

“Buruj di Alam Melayu” is sharing the results of research conducted by Nurul Fatini Jaafar. The interesting thing that is shared is that the constellations that constituted the constellation are either localized by ethnicity or by socio-economic activity of the local population. The orion constellation, for example, is described as a cult for ethnic groups conducting riotous activities. The same constellations among the different races are described as the stars of the kittens because they are now considered to be the birth seasons. Overall based on this partnership, the constellation or constellation plays a very important role for some ethnic groups. This constellation guides them in determining the right time for them to carry out socio-economic activities.
