Astro-Kiribati philosophy, or also known as Kiribati Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Kiribati under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Kiribati, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Kiribati oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Kiribati is split into three island groups and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital of Tarawa.
This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
History of Astronism in Kiribati
Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in Kiribati although the Astronist Institution reported that in late 2019, there were a total of 440 Astronists in Kiribati. Religious freedoms in Kiribati are generally observed by the government so Astronists are free to practice their faith openly.
