Indigenous Perspectives on Earth and Sky, Featuring Chad Kālepa Baybayan
Born and raised on Maui, Chad Kālepa Baybayan first sailed on Hōkūleʻa in 1975, a traditionally designed reconstruction of a double-hulled deep-sea oceanic voyaging canoe. He has since sailed on major voyages throughout the Pacific and in 2014 participated as captain and navigator on the Mālama Honua Worldwide voyage, a 47,000 nautical mile journey around the world that visited 26 countries and stopped at 85 ports. He currently serves as the Navigator in Residence at the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai‘i developing wayfinding activities, curriculum materials, and conducting outreach. In 2007, his teacher, Master Navigator Mau Piailug, on the tiny Micronesian atoll of Satawal, initiated Kālepa into the order of Pwo, a three thousand year old society of deep-sea navigators.
