Astro-Burkinan philosophy, or Burkinan Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in Burkina Faso under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for Burkina Faso, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for Burkina Faso oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Burkina Faso is split into thirteen administrative regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Ouagadougou.
History of Astronism in Burkina Faso
As of November 2019, the government of Burkina Faso does not recognise Astronism as a religion in the country. Despite this, Burkina Faso has a positive record in adhering to its religious freedom laws set down in its constitution. For this reason, Astronists are generally considered as free to practice and profess their faith publicly without incident. With the main language in the country being French, this does represent a barrier for Burkinan Astronists to access the currently largely English body of Astronist content. The current number of Astronists is not known, however, estimates have been placed at around 1,000.
