From Oahu, Mark Ellis is an educator and member of Polynesian Voyaging Society. In his classes he focuses on lessons that teach about the past, present, and future of Polynesian canoe engineering. To him Hōkūleʻa means opportunity: opportunity for all who are sailing to learn, grow and to make a positive difference in our own lives, our Ohana, our Ahupuaa, our Moku, our Pae Aina and our Honua.
