We visit Tonto National Monument where the cliff-dwelling Sinagua people thrived in the desert and enjoyed an exceptional connection with the night sky. Learn how they used the Milky Way to navigate at night. Today the monument is a certified International Dark Sky Park. Find out what they mean by “half the park is after dark”.
