Hawaiian Voyage Salmon Modern Tie
Hawaiian Voyage is a tribute to the wa'a kaulua, a Polynesian double-hulled voyaging canoe. Traditionally constructed from wood, these canoes were the vehicle of choice for Hawaiians to navigate over 16 million square miles in the Pacific. A modern version, the Hokule'a, now continues the voyaging in the present day. Hawaiians were highly skilled long-distance navigators and seamen, using celestial navigation and knowledge of wind and weather patterns to accomplish purposeful exploration. Navigators were thus regarded as scientists and held a high ranking in the Hawaiian caste system.
