Polynesian Voyaging Society
Canoe by Sue Nash
The Polynesian Voyaging Society was founded in 1973 to research how Polynesian seafarers discovered and settled nearly every inhabitable island in the Pacific Ocean before European explorers arrived in the 16th century. They undertake voyages of discovery, respecting and learning from the Hawaiian and Polynesian heritage and culture. Their mission is to strengthen learning by integrating voyaging experiences into quality education. They are committed to nurturing communities and their leadership which value learning and sharing knowledge in order to foster living well on islands.
