O Ke Kai Series – star compass, navigation, constellations and more

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, Ao Cultural Center – Luana Maitland, Director of Cultural Programs.

In collaboration with Kanehunamoku Voyaging Academy, we were able to present a Hawaiian star compass, explain star navigation and star constellations, knot tying, demonstrate hands-on sanding techniques, show the Hawaiian native woods used to build canoes, keiki canoe building kits, and sharing the Hawaiian traditions of canoe building.

A special Mahalo to our kumu kalai waa Tay Perry and apprentices Loy Kuo, Ryan Olivares, and Rick Hobson for their kokua. We’ll return on December 2, 2023!
