“We, the Voyagers” Documentary Film Screening on Polynesian Voyaging Traditions in the Solomon Islands
Jan 31, 2020 - 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM
A special screening in Bishop Museum’s Atherton Halau of the new two-part documentary We, the Voyagers, about ethnically Polynesian voyagers in the Solomon Islands, who share their history, motivations, and skills through storytelling, canoe building, and wayfinding.
The intrepid sailors use only the traditional designs, materials, and methods of their cultural hero Lata, who according to legend built the first voyaging canoe (vaka) and navigated to distant islands.
Each film is 60 minutes, with a short intermission between the two screenings. Hosted by Bishop Museum and cosponsored by the East-West Center, the evening will be led by Dr. Marianne “Mimi” George, anthropologist, sailor, and writer specializing in voyaging cultures.
