500 Sails Inc. president Emma Perez will share her organization’s vision to restore a maritime tradition in the Marianas by putting 500 traditional-style sailing canoes in the water by 2030.
Perez will discuss how the vision was birthed, the organization’s current plans to begin the work quickly and cost-effectively, and most importantly, what this renaissance may mean for the Marianas, culturally, socially, and economically.
Perez’s project is supported by a Community Grant awarded to 500 Sails Inc. by the Northern Marianas Humanities Council.
More information about 500 Sails Inc. is available online at http://www.500sails.org/.
