30 minute live planetarium presentation + 30 minute video Wayfinders: Waves, Winds and Stars

In Wayfinders: Waves, Winds, and Stars, learn how to read the stars and interpret the wind and waves as we follow the story of Hawaii’s Polynesian Voyaging Society and their efforts to recover the nearly lost techniques of traditional Polynesian navigation aboard the double-hulled canoe Hōkūleʻa. Fulldome footage and animation blend together to take viewers aboard Hōkūleʻa and demonstrate how ancient wayfinders were able to navigate halfway across the world without the use of modern instruments. Produced by Bishop Museum in collaboration with Polynesian Voyaging Society and 1001 Stories.

Pierce College students are free.  General admission $8.  Please purchase tickets in advance.
