Thousands of years ago, navigating without charts or instruments, Polynesian settled the vast pacific Ocean. The Navigators follows archaeologists working on the Tahitian island of Huahine, in Fiji and Hawaii as they prove that Polynesia's settlers forced their way against winds and currents aboard large seaworthy double-hulled canoes. In a dramatic demonstration they guide a replica of such a vessel, Hokule'a, from Hawaii to Tahiti - 2500 miles across the ocean without benefit of sextant, compass, or any other western navigational instrument.
Restored and Remastered Edition (Originally released 1983). 59 minutes
