“…but the Polynesian voyager, the naked savage, shipless and metalless, hewed him out of a log dugout with a sharpened stone, tied some planks to the sides thereof with a string, put his wife, children, some coconuts, and a pet pig on board, and sailed forth upon the great ocean to settle a lone isle two thousand miles away – and did it.” – Eldsdon Best
A workshop is available which offers an insight into the world of an ancient seafarer. Like most human societies, for the Pacific voyager there was a leader and a holy man. It was the man connected with the gods who were the masters of the stars, the skies and the waters. It is an examination into indigenous history, traditional narratives, actual techniques as well as my own personal experiences while sailing the seas.
