Polynesian navigator and Māori leader Sir Hekenukumai Pūhipi (Sir Hector Busby) - or ‘Sir Hek’ - reflects on dedicating his life to the restoration of Māori seafaring traditions, sailing the Pacific triangle - linking Aotearoa, Hawaii and Rapa Nui - and attempting to preserve and revive knowledge that is in danger of being forgotten.
