‘Earth Matters’ public lectures series continues

The National Tropical Botanical Garden and Kauai Community College’s collaborative Earth Matters public lecture series continues from 5:30 tonight as Kauai-based cultural anthropologist Dr. Mimi George and Permanent Secretary of the Vaka Taumako Project Meph Wyeth present part two of “We the Voyagers: Lata’s Children.”

This 57-minute documentary film tells the living story of the first voyager and Polynesian culture hero, Lata, as the crew navigates to distant lands using only ancient designs, materials and methods.

George and Wyeth will introduce the film, answer questions after the showing, and discuss current voyaging programs and plans.

Earth Matters lectures are held in the KCC cafeteria behind the Performing Arts Center.
