Hawaiki rising : Hōkūle'a, Nainoa Thompson, and the Hawaiian renaissance by Sam Low( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Attuned to a world of natural signs--the stars, the winds, the curl of ocean swells--Polynesian explorers navigated for thousands of miles without charts or instruments. They sailed against prevailing winds and currents aboard powerful double canoes to settle the vast Pacific Ocean. And they did this when Greek mariners stilled hugged the coast of an inland sea, and Europe was populated by stone-age farmers. Yet by the turn of the twentieth century, this story had been lost and Polynesians had become an oppressed minority in their own land. Then, in 1975, a replica of an ancient Hawaiian canoe--Hōkūle'a--was launched to sail the ancient star paths, and help Hawaiians reclaim pride in the accomplishments of their ancestors."--Jacket

"The Maasai, a prosperous society of animal herders whose sustenence and wealth is their cattle, live primarily in the Rift Valley between Kenya and Tanzania. Women tend the cattle, bring up the children, clean mud from the village when it rains, and belong to a man's estate. This film highlights the Maasai female's rights of passage from childhood to old age, and her lot in life as she is tied to the fortunes of not only husbands but sons as well. Since they alone can give birth, the women see themselves as important contributors to their husband's wealth and develop close supportive relationships with the co-wives. In this society, if a man is rich, "it's his wives who made him so.""--Container
