T. Kubot, B. G. (n.d.). To Honor Mau. Retrieved from

This book is about the voyage to deliver a double-hulled sailing canoe thousands of miles as a gift to renowned wayfinding navigator Mau Piailug of Satawal, Micronesia. Native Hawaiians delivered the canoe to express their gratitude to Mau for sharing his knowledge of non- instrument navigation 30 years ago, reviving their sailing culture. Courtesy of Polynesian Voyaging Society This map of the Pacific Ocean charts the route of the sailing canoes Hokulea and Alingano Maisu to Satawal, the home atoll of Mau Piailug.

Out of the Northeast Pacific, out of the Hawaiian Islands, of the gods Papa of Earth and Wakea of Water, forged by the fire goddess Pele, came the double-hulled sailing canoes Hokulea and Alingano Maisu. Mai na Koolau Mai Hawaii pae aina Ma o Papa me Wakea Ma o Pele ka wahine a ka lua Eia mai na waa kaulua O Hokulea laua O Alingano Maisu Saengi eotiwaefangin Pacific Sangi faniuwaen Hawaii Faniuwer aniu Papa, aniun faniuw, me aniu Wakea, Anium neset, faniuwaen niewe aniu Pele, Aniun aengaet, aser waserakewe Hokulea me Alingano Maisu.
