In 1976, Hawaiians sailed the traditional voyaging canoe Hōkūle’a from Hawai’I to Tahiti and proved to the world that their ancestors had explored the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean by navigating with the stars.

Papa Mau: the Wayfinder is the story of the critical role that master navigator Mau Piailug played in that voyage and the rebirth of Polynesian unity and pride that followed. The Hōkūle’a was built by members of the newly formed Polynesian Voyaging Society, who dreamed of sailing in the way of their ancestors. Shortly thereafter, a search began for someone who could teach them the art of non-instrument navigation, which had been all but lost until they met Micronesian-born Mau, who agreed to share his knowledge. Follow the remarkable journey of an iconic voyaging canoe and a new generation of Hawaiian navigators who, under the guidance of Papa Mau, revitalized and reclaimed Polynesia’s voyaging tradition.
