Mau Piailug, Micronesian Navigator, is from the Carolinian island of Satawal, best known as a teacher of traditional, non-instrument wayfinding methods for open-ocean voyaging.
Mau's Carolinian navigation system —which relies on navigational clues using the sun and stars, winds and clouds, seas and swells, and birds and fish — was acquired through rote learning passed down through teachings in the oral tradition.
