Episode 68: Picture Calendar

The Bunon uses the lunar calendar. A year is divided into 12 months, and one month into 30 days. They use knots to record days. One knot equals one day. 30 knots fills a month. When hunters go into the mountains to hunt, they also use knots to record days. In this episode, Taws shows us the different phases of the moon. When the Earth, Moon, and the Sun is one line, that is the first of a lunar month, and we can’t see the moon. One rotation of the moon equals one month.
