Thousands of years ago the ancestors of the first people of Aotearoa set sail from Southeast Asia. Using the stars they explored the great southern ocean. In this presentation, we discuss the legends, star and sea lore, and the techniques used by Polynesian sailors. We look at the migration of people into the Pacific and the migration between islands finally leading to the colonisation of Easter Island and New Zealand.

Afterwards, weather permitting, we will explore the night sky identifying stars and constellations important to Maori.

Bookings are essential.
