Renaissance (English Edition) online ﬔ Ebook Author Nan Bacon ﬧ As the walls of Troy were falling to the Greeks, Polynesian explorers followed star paths across the worlds greatest ocean to settle one third of Earths surface.Its one of the most amazing stories of navigation and maritime exploration.And its never been properly told Until now.Ask today about the settlement of Polynesia and you will be told a false tale of drifters at the mercy of wind and wave Kon Tiki Thor Heyerdahl believed Polynesians floated into the Pacific from South America on crude rafts, pushed by prevailing winds and currents.But the real story is far interesting they sailed against these winds and currents from island Southeast Asia in sophisticated sailing craft In vessels like Hokulea a replica of a double hull Polynesian voyaging canoe In the last 40 years, Hokulea has sailed 140,000 miles from Hawaii to Tahiti, New Zealand, Samoa, Easter Island following ancient voyaging routes Her crew has discovered the secrets of early navigators that allowed them to find land across thousands of miles of trackless ocean.And by sailing the sea paths of their ancestors, Hawaiians have rediscovered pride in their voyaging heritage and sparked a renaissance of their culture.Hawaiki Rising tells this story in the words of the men and women who voyaged aboard Hokulea They speak of growing up at a time when their Hawaiian culture was in danger of extinction and their future in their own land was uncertain.We join Nainoa Thompson, a young Hawaiian, as he looks skyward to discover ancient star patterns that once guided his ancestors on their epic voyages.We meet Mau Piailug, a traditional navigator from the tiny Micronesian island of Satawal, as he reaches across barriers of culture and distance to give Nainoa his secret wayfinding knowledge.And we are aboard Hokulea as Nainoa and his crew make a 2400 mile ocean voyage from Hawaii to Tahiti the first Hawaiian sailors to navigate the Pacific without charts or instruments in a thousand years.When crewmember Sam Kaai carved the kii the sculpted figure that adorns Hokulea, a dream came to him of a blind man reaching to the heavens This is an effigy of how we are after so many years of oppression, Sam tells us Blind to our past, we reach up to grasp heaven one time He is reaching above himself, beyond himself, to the story that has not changed, the forever and ever story He is showing that we are taking hold of the old story once again.Hawaiki Rising is the saga of an astonishing revival of indigenous culture by voyagers who sailed deep into their ancestral past Hawaiki Rising has won the 2014 Samuel M.Kamakau awardfor best bookpublished in Hawaii, twoKaPalapala Pookela Awards, aNautilus Silver Award, aBenFranklin award, anIPPY awardand
