Through the internet and modern-day technology, the world was able to track and engage with Hōkūle‘a, a traditional Hawaiian voyaging canoe, that used no modern technology to sail around the world. Hōkūle‘a traveled 42,000 nautical miles in three years and visited 150 ports in over 20 countries and kept in contact with the world the whole time. The Mālama Honua online map showed the canoe’s location in real time. Video chat from the canoe to classrooms allowed children to hear from the crew directly about details of the voyage. Come hear how all that was made possible.
This six-part Traditions of the Pacific lecture series is made possible through the generous support from Hawai’i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.
