"Stick charts were 18th and 19th century navigational charts used in the Marshal Islands. They were woven, abstract constructions of coconut fronds, documenting ocean swells, counter swells, currents, and even (some say clouds, bird paths, flotsam and the navigator's particular requirements. In essence, it is a map of the makers own world." Timothy Koelle
