Hōkūle’a: Meaning of the World Wide Voyage

Hōkūle’a crewmember Kaina Holomalia describes how the voyage to Palmyra Atoll connects to the greater purpose behind the worldwide voyage

Kaina was a watch captain on the recent voyage to Palmyra Atoll, 1,000 miles south of Hawai’i. Crewmembers are training for the Hōkūle’a Wolrdwide Voyage in which the traditional Hawaiian canoe will circumnavigate the Earth using ancient Polynesian navigation techniques. The crew carry with them the idea that we are all crew members on Canoe Earth and, just as on Hōkūle’a, we need to care for one another an our resources.
