The Navigators: Pathfinders of the Pacific

Restored & Remastered Edition.

Over 1,000 years ago, the scattered islands of Polynesia were settled by an ancient seafaring people. Where did they come from? How did they navigate across the vast Pacific Ocean to settle one-third of Earth's surface?

To find out, anthropologist Sam Low visited the tiny coral atoll of Satawal, in Micronesia's remote Caroline Islands, to film Mau Piailug as he guides his canoe by using subtle signs in the waves, winds and stars. In his lofty canoe house he teaches the intricacies of this ancient sea science in a ceremony called "unfolding the mat" by arranging 32 lumps of coral to represent the points of his "star compass."

Thor Heyerdahl thought Polynesia was settled from South America by voyagers who drifted aboard primitive rafts like Kon Tiki, pushed along by prevailing winds and currents. But he was wrong. The Navigators follows archeologists working on the Tahitian island of Huahine, in Fiji and Hawaii as they prove that Polynesia's settlers forced their way against the winds and currents from Island Southeast Asia aboard large seaworthy double-hulled canoes. In a dramatic demonstration, Mau Piailug guides a replica of such a vessel, Hokule`a, from Hawaii to Tahiti - 2500 miles across the ocean without benefit of sextant, compass, or any other Western navigational instrument.

SALE: The Great Queen Seondeok Vol. 1

Regular Price: $59.95

Special Price: $50.99

The Great Queen Seondeok is the story of a charismatic queen who gives up her love to become the ruler of Silla and her people. With historical battle scenes, a star-studded cast and writer Kim Young-hyeon (Jewel in the Palace) helming the project, it is MBC’s follow-up historical drama to Yi San: Wind of the Palace (2008) and Ju-mong: Prince of Legend (2006).


During the Three Kingdoms period of Korea, Deokman (Queen Seondeok’s childhood name) was born as the younger twin to King Jinpyeong. However, due to a longstanding ominous prophecy regarding twins being born in the royal family, she was smuggled out and raised with no knowledge of her royal status. Years later, still oblivious to the truth of her birth, she fatefully ends up back in the Silla palace where she joins forces with Princess Cheonmyeong, her older sister, and Hwarang Kim Yushin to oppose Misil, a sly and conniving woman who holds substantial power in the court and wants the throne for herself.
