Navigation: Kupe & Cook. An Ocean in a Mind and a Mind on an Ocean product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsIn Navigation: Kupe & Cook, Kingsley Smith traces the beginnings of travel by boat as man migrated out of Africa and arrived in Sahul (Australia and New Guinea) 50,000 years ago.

Smith discusses the role of navigation in Literary societies, up to the voyages of Captain James Cook, and in Orality societies, especially those in Polynesia up to the time when Kupe made his voyage to Aotearoa.

Skills acquired while navigating along major rivers aided the development of oceanic voyaging. Navigation demands communication and memory. Writing allowed the production of the earliest books and maps, materials and instruments in Literary societies. The instruments used by Cook, particularly the accurate chronometer, enabled precise latitude and longitude navigation.

In the absence of a written language, the Orality societies developed intricate methods to reinforce memory. Two different Pacific navigation systems are highlighted, one of which, the Vaeakau-Taumoko, is the oldest in this part of the world. The other is the Tahitian system which uniquely allows latitude and longitude navigation by referencing the Rua and Ana stars and the Pou pillar of navigation.

The book includes extensive references at the end of each section and a useful selection of photographs, maps, and diagrams to complement the text.
