Explorer, Filmmaker and Cultural Anthropologist
The Hawaiian elders who raised Elizabeth Kapu’uwailani Lindsey told her she would travel far to keep the voices of the ancestors alive. Today, the renowned explorer travels to remote areas, collecting ancient knowledge. She recently returned from a solo, three-month journey around the world where she documented fragile cultures, including the Moken, who are sea nomads.
The first Polynesian explorer at the National Geographic Society, Dr. Lindsey is a recognized expert in the field of cultural intelligence. She is a recipient of the United Nations Visionary Award.
