Hikianalia Homecoming Expected – Tues. June 16
June 16, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
THIS EVENT WILL BE UPDATED FREQUENTLY PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL.
Hikianalia, the sister canoe of legendary voyaging vessel Hōkūleʻa, is nearing home shores after over a year of sailing throughout the Pacific Ocean. The public is invited to join PVS in welcoming the crew home at the Marine Education and Training Center at 10 Sand Island Parkway. Please subscribe to our newsletter or follow @hokuleawwv for the latest updates.
Hikianalia is returning home to Hawaii to bring the education promise of the voyage back to the local community. Hikianalia will sail throughout the state, hosted by the leaders of the ʻohana waʻa (voyaging community) on each neighbor island, to provide experiential learning opportunities to teachers and students over the course of the next year. Hikianalia will then sail the west coast of the United States before reuniting with Hōkūleʻa in South America to finish the worldwide voyage together.
