    Dogon in the 1930s and after a number of years they gained their trust enough to be allowed to know the secret things.
    The Dogon said the star Sirius was orbited by the "smallest and heaviest of all stars" and they would draw a diagram of an elliptical orbit and said the period was 50 years. The anthropologists commented in their papers that this knowledge was surprising.
    It is more than surprising - Sirius is orbited by a white dwarf and it is so invisible that the first image of it was only obtained in 1970.
    It was first detected over 100 years ago because it's orbit causes Sirius to appear to wobble; and the mystery of what kind of object was causing that wobble was only explained relatively recently.

    The Dogon
    The Dogon are a group of people living in the central plateau region of Mali, south of the Niger bend near the city of Bandiagara in the Mopti region. They number just under 800,000.The Dogon are best known for their mythology, their mask dances, wooden sculpture and their architecture. The past century has seen significant changes in the social organization, material culture and beliefs of the Dogon, partly because Dogon country is one of Mali's major tourist attractions.
