Celestial Navigation with Piripi Smith

Discover how traditional navigators navigated waka hourua (traditional double hulled sailing waka) throughout the Pacific Ocean without any use of instruments or modern technology. Join celestial navigator Piripi Smith as he shares his knowledge about what traditional voyaging and celestial navigation is, why it’s important today and what is being done to ensure the knowledge is passed on.

(Introduced by Pauline Harris from S.M.A.R.T.)

Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm showing, Doors at 8.15pm for 8.30pm showing.
