Different speakers from the community speak about Mauna O Wakea from a cultural perspective

Presentation Topic - Sailing by the Stars

Tied into the Imiloa Navigation theme, the presentation will focus on the interrelationship between art, culture, and science in fields such as astronomy, celestial navigation, and wayfinding.  Stars are easily seen during the dry months, so it is the perfect time for the beginning kilohoku to learn their patterns and lore.  Attendees will learn how Polynesian navigators follow star lines to Hawaii, and then take their handouts to the VIS to practice wayfinding techniques and to observe the night sky with and without telescopes.
