Astronomy Talk: He Lani Ko Luna—A Sky Above – Chad Kalepa Baybayan

Chad Kālepa Baybayan is captain and navigator of the Hawaiian deep-sea voyaging canoes Hōkūle’a, Hawai’iloa, and Hōkūalaka’i. Baybayan will give a fascinating presentation on the history of oceanic wayfinding in the Pacific and the efforts to revitalize this once-dynamic maritime culture by exploring the symbiotic relationship between land, sea, sky, and people. He currently serves as the Navigator in Residence at ‘Imiloa. In 2007, Baybayan was initiated into the order of Pwo, a two thousand year old society of deep-sea navigators, by their teacher, Master Navigator Mau Piailug.
