The traditional Hawaiian canoe, Hokule'a, is presently attempting a circumnavigation
of the world using ancient navigational techniques and to promote peace around the world. The Polynesians were great ancient navigators/sailors who settled and explored the Pacific after departing from mainland China
and surrounding islands in the Orient around 4,000 years ago. The sailor in the following video is obviously emotionally connected to his people,their culture and past as he talks about the upcoming journey. How many of us Europeans can honestly say we have the same emotional connections to our ancestors and their traditions of sailing and discovery? Is this a price
we have paid becoming enslaved to our modern world?
