Te Vaka means “The Canoe”.

The double hulled voyaging “canoe” (a catamaran to most sailors) was carrying Polynesian explorers thousands of years ago across the Pacific, navigating by natural signs like stars, swells and birdflight. The art and science of making them, sailing and navigating was nearly lost. Then rediscovered. Now there are dozens sailing, reinvigorating ancient and important arts and sciences, and a culture that encompasses a vast swath of Island Earth.
