Flying The Ama

Here is a great promo for a video about the cultural side of outrigger canoe paddling.

Flying the Ama is the story of the paddlers of these magical boats and the history, culture, and tradition that they and the boats exemplify. The film explores the cultural roots of the outrigger canoe by gathering stories from the torchbearers of the tradition on many of the Pacific Islands including Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, Tonga, Tahiti, as well as Australia and New Zealand.
