Polynesian Navigation and the Discovery of New Zealand

Polynesian Navigation and the Discovery of New Zealand
Polynesian Navigation and the Discovery of New Zealand
The Polynesian navigator Kupe is credited with the discovery of the land his expedition named Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud. How did he and the many canoes that followed find their way without modern navigational techniques through perilous seas in wooden canoes? By examining myth, star charts and contemporary Polynesian seafaring, Jeff Evans traces the methods by which the early explorers made their epic voyages in Part One. The book's second part travels with Maori canoe expert Matahi Brightwell and navigator Frances Cowan aboard the traditional canoe Hawaiki-nui following traditional navigation with no modern aids on its historic voyage from Tahiti down to New Zealand.
