    I've often found that when one digs enough into "traditional" knowledge, one frequently finds that humans still have a scientific way of approaching problems.   The Polynesian navigation techniques mostly seem to have their roots in what we would consider well-established empiricism.    Native American tribes would use astronomical phenomena to figure out when to plant corn, etc.   Although the vocabulary would seem at odds with our descriptions, the basic fact is that they used these phenomena as predictive, even if there was a high degree of anthropomorphic identification with the phenomena.
