A Voyage To Health explores the recent revival of the ancient arts of navigation and voyaging that first brought the people of Hawai‘i to their island homes. Much of the valuable knowledge of voyaging was lost as a consequence of the suppression of traditional ways. As part of a wider movement to reintroduce traditional ways, Native Hawaiians are mastering the knowledge and skills of their elders. By restoring their heritage, this new generation seeks to heal the people. A Voyage to Health explores this resurgence and its significance for health, well-being, and self-determination.
