Hikianalia, sister canoe to Hōkūle’a, is journeying around our Hawaiian Islands in search of stories of hope here at home that are making a positive change for Hawai‘i’s future, inspired by Hōkūle’a’s legacy. To find more about upcoming events, visit our Hikianalia Statewide Sail page.
Community members and educators gathered at Loko Ea Fishpond last night for Waʻa Talks, a time for people to talk about the Worldwide Voyage, and share ways that we can all be inspired to mālama honua, in and out of classrooms. Featured presenters were Mālama Loko Ea, Kokua Hawaii Foundation, Ka Hei, Hoʻala School, Kamehameha Schools, Kahi Kai, and Polynesian Voyaging Society. Thank you Mālama Loko Ea for hosting us last night, and for your wonderful lessons about place, sustenance, and sustainability!
