Traditional navigation takes center stage with Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps

Master Navigator Larry Riagetel gave the Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps a lesson in Island Wisdom and Traditional Navigating this month as a part of the five-month long G3CC Season.

The group learned about care of the traditional boat and proa, a practice that not many people are exposed to these days.

The lesson included familiarization with nautical terms and practices and a speed through of important knots used for wayfaring.

They also learned about canoe culture, the purpose of canoes and the functions of a canoe house. 

The group was eager to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice, and with the continued tutelage of Master Larry, the group hopes to hit the water soon.
