Polynesians were the most adventurous voyagers on earth. They sailed the vast Pacific by the stars. But these ancient arts were lost for 600 years. Then the stars re-aligned and three men from far flung islands met by chance. Nainoa Thompson from Hawaii, Mau Pialug from Satawal, Hek Busby from Aotearoa / New Zealand. Together they revived the Polynesians’ place as the greatest navigators on the planet.
