Aloha mai kākou, ʻo Hōkū Johnson koʻu inoa. I’m here at James Island County Outdoor Festival near Charleston, South Carolina. This is a great event where people are sharing outdoor education, flanked by our supporters here Ama Olukai, Oceans Earth, and the American Canoe Association. We even have our own Worldwide Voyage booth going on with our star compass to share information about navigation. We are also putting together some peace flags to make quilts to share around the world, which as been fun for the keiki. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew is getting Hōkūleʻa ready for departure early tomorrow morning alogn the Intracoastal Waterway. Please continue to follow us on Hokulea.com. Aloha!
More than Adventure
Beyond a daring expedition, the Worldwide Voyage is quite possibly the most important mission that Hawaiʻi has ever attempted. As people of Oceania, we are leading a campaign that gives voice to our ocean and planet by highlighting innovative solutions practiced by cultures around the planet.
We could not have begun this great journey without your support, nor can we continue to its completion.
