Voyaging Canoes

Hokulea & Hikianalia

This past week, Hilo welcomed two voyaging canoes, Hokule’a and Hikianalia.  Due to weather conditions, the canoes have not left Radio Bay, but will depart shortly.  The Malama Honua  (“to care for our earth”) voyage will circumnavigate the world within a time frame of THREE years.  I commend the navigation team for their bravery and leadership in promoting indigenous learning and sustainability.  To learn more about the voyage and to track the location of the canoes, you can visit the Polynesian Voyaging Society.
