Two-Eyed Seeing: Hawai’ian Indigenous Astronomy & NASA Moon to Mars
March 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join for an exciting live show on Hawai’ian Indigenous Astronomy including the revitalization of Wayfinding and traditional Hawai’ian methods of navigation. Students from the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences will present their research which will include a place-based activity, “Make Your Own Hawai’ian Star Compasses” and essential understanding of the Hawaiian Star Families. Also an important discussion on the parallel between the Indigenous Hawai’ian process of choosing a crew and the NASA process used for the Artemis Moon mission (2024) and later the Mars mission (2030’s), both grounded in similar missions of exploration but employing different technologies.
