2:17 min. - Remark about the Morning Star
Basile Bellefleur - When they get up in the morning, they know by looking at the sunrise. Just before sunrise, by looking at a particular star, the blue star known as the Morning Star, they know that the sun is going to rise. That's when they start getting ready, because Innu begin working early in the morning. When he starts to get hungry, he knows lunchtime is approaching. He makes a fire for his tea. Then he goes back to work. He relies on the length of the trees to ascertain the time of day. That's his clock. He uses the suns's movements and its shadows. The shadows are on one side in the morning, and if you walk straight ahead your shadow changes places at one point, since the sun moves. That's how he knows what time of day it is.
