The Dogon people live West Africa, in the general vicinity of Timbuctu. By the time they were questioned by two French anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, between 1931 and 1950, the Dogon supposedly had knowledge of various astronomical matters (particularly relating to the Sirius solar system) that could not have been discovered using the technology available to them.
Various UFO researchers have stated, or implied, that the relative knowledge derived from alien visitors to the Earth.
This is often referred to as “the Sirius Mystery”.
Numerous sceptics, notably popular astronomer Carl Sagan, have suggested that the knowledge attributed to the Dogon may have been obtained from Europeans prior to questioning by Griaule and Dieterlen.
