A group of 73 students and teachers from the Ohi Tai Tai School in Taravao, French Polynesia are enjoying a cultural exchange visit with crew members of the Hokule’a at the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s training center on Ford Island in Honolulu.
According to http://www.hawaiiirl.com, the visit was inspired by Hokule’a’s recently completed Malama Honua worldwide voyage of peace and understanding:
“Since the voyage launched in 2013, these students and their teachers have focused on the Mālama Honua voyage and mission. They greeted the Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia crews that sailed into Tahiti on Legs 31 and 31B at Matavai Bay in April 2017, and welcomed them with song, dance and instruments as well as with displays about what they had learned and done over the past four years within the mission of Mālama Honua.”
“While visiting METC, PVS crew members hosted the visiting teachers and students to canoe tours on Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia, star compass demonstrations, video presentations and discussions about the Worldwide Voyage.”
