Orion Constellation in Egyptian, Mayan and Hopi Cultures

Many ancient cultures shared the belief that we came from the stars. For dozens of millennia if not longer, humans have been plotting the movement of the stars, studying the heavens, constructing calendars, and erecting monuments to track the procession of the constellations and heavenly bodies across the night sky.

Several constellations and stars have played an important role in ancient cultures and the belief of the celestial origins of our species. In the places where these legends emerge, we find structures that correlate with the position of these stars and constellations in the sky. And, perhaps the most prevalent of all these correlations is with the Orion constellation.
