Kudo's for the work involved in this post, OP. It is a very well done piece.
However, I do not believe that if European adventurers in the last century found the Dogon and managed to communicate with them they would be talking about astronomy. They would have to establish some way to speak and comprehend each other, and then sit down and discuss the positions of the stars for God knows how long before it would become part of the Dogon ffolklore..it is too far fetched. I do not believe it.
