Videos of Polynesian Voyaging


Welcome to our collection of videos of Polynesian voyaging. The canoe–and the unexampled ability of the Hawaiian to navigate it across the imponderable vastness of the Pacific–looms large, and for good reason. What better symbolizes the intimate relationship that Hawaiians once enjoyed with their environment? So keenly attuned to the rhythms of nature were they that the ancient navigator could discern the proximity of unseen land by the shape and pattern of ocean swells. Happily, that relationship is alive and well with the journeys far and wide of Hokule’a… a canoe that carries Hawaii’s pride to the world.
