Acrylic and Oil
Gah Hahat’ee (lower curve of Scorpius) can be translated in Navajo as Rabbit Tracks (pronounced Ga ha hat ey). The pattern of the stars’ formation depicts the tracks of a rabbit running and leaping out. When Rabbit Tracks turns on its side in the early fall, it signifies that young deer are old enough to survive without their mothers. The constellation, thus, heralds the beginning of deer hunting season. Rabbit Tracks is located in the lower curved tail of Scorpius and can be found in the southwest sky in the fall and slowly tilts to the west as the months progress.
