Polynesians traveled throughout the Pacific in dugout sailing canoes. They navigated through storms and high seas, plotting their paths relative to the Sun, Moon and stars. Polynesian did not have a written language, however; their early teachers embraced Science. Navigators utilized science to navigate and find tiny islands in a vast ocean.
