Wayfinding and navigation are some of the essential parts of the Hawaiian and Polynesian cultures. Polynesian voyagers were one of the first people to travel long distances in early ages, so navigation was crucial and an integral part of places like Hawaii's historical and cultural heritage. 

"Before the invention of the compass, the sextant and clocks, or more recently, the satellite-dependant Global Positioning System (GPS), Pacific Islanders navigated open-ocean voyages without instruments, using instead their observations of the stars, the sun, the ocean swells, and other signs of nature for clues to direction and location of a vessel at sea," Hokule'a.com.

Ancient Hawaiians were skilled in using the natural world around them to guide their everyday lives. They sailed all over Polynesia using the night sky as their compass and the ocean as their guide. Today, traditional voyagers still use celestial navigation and wayfinding to honor the ways of the first Hawaiians. The most magical part? We can still explore the same skyline that Hawaiians were studying and using to navigate more than 500 years ago.

While Maui is now home to growing small cities like Kahului or Kihei, most of the island becomes a glowing light show when the sun sets. Looking up at the night sky with a warm cup of hot cocoa, some
