He tini ngā whetū e ngaro i te kapua iti.
(Many stars cannot be concealed by a small cloud)

--Maori proverb

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.

As part of the Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Series, screenings will be in the Science Dome at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
