Vaka Taumako: The First Voyage

In order to pass on the traditional ways of building and sailing voyaging canoes to the younger generations, the people of Taumako in the Solomon Islands began a project to build and sail their traditional voyaging canoes. This documentary looks at the first canoe that was built and sailed from Taumako (Solomon Islands) to Nifiloli (Solomon Islands) helping to retrace the traditional trading routes and rebuild traditional interdependence. Recorded on November 21, 1998.
