Kalepa Baybayan , Polynesian Voyaging Society, Honolulu, HI
Kalepa will discuss the rediscovery and practice of instrumentless navigation that is used on the experimental voyages undertaken by the Polynesian Voyaging Society. As a master navigator trained in the art of "wayfinding" as it has become known, Kalepa has a unique set of perspectives on this, and the broader significance of this art with regard to histories of settlement and seafaring.
