Sam Low: A Hawaiian Yankee
Tuesday, November 18, 7:30 pm

In 1921, a young Sandy Low was sent away from his home in Kohala to attend school in Connecticut. He never returned to Hawaii.  But he gave his aloha spirit, his appreciation of Hawaiian music, and most importantly, his love of the sea, to his son, Sam Low, who was raised on Martha's Vineyard off Cape Cod.  Sam Low took all that his father had given him to heart, and returned to Hawaii to become an ocean voyager.


This program is available in high-definition and will be rebroadcast on Wed., Nov. 19 at 11:00 pm and Sun., Nov. 23 at 4:00 pm.

Sam Low: Raising Islands     
Tuesday, November 25 at 7:30 pm

As a crewmember on the Hokulea, waterman Sam Low experienced the chicken skin moments when, as the canoe would approach a Pacific island, the island itself would appear to be raised out of the distant horizon as the canoe sailed closer.  As a documentarian, author Sam Low heard the vision, fears and dreams of master navigator Nainoa Thompson and those involved with sailing the canoe.  On this episode, Sam Low shares his stories of sailing on Hokulea.
