In the Wake of Our Ancestors.
Orion, v22 n2 p39-45 Mar-Apr 2003
To understand and revive the ancient Hawaiian culture, the crew of a traditional Polynesian double-hulled voyaging canoe sails among the Pacific Islands without charts or instruments. Trained by Western science, elders, and experience, the navigator guides the craft by the stars and dead reckoning. Each voyage is linked to Hawaiian classroom programs, and high school students from a new charter school join the crew. (SV)
