The ocean voyaging canoe Hokule’a and its sister canoe, Hikianaloa, continued their “Mahalo Hawaii Sail” with a port call at Pokai Bay in Waianae.  More than a thousand West Oahu residents greeted the canoes, including some prominent political and cultural dignitaries:

“Gov. David Ige, Mayor Kirk Caldwell and Polynesian Voyaging Society president Nainoa Thompson participated in a special ceremony honoring Keaulana, noting his lifelong contributions to the people of the Waianae coast, along with Sen. Maile Shimabukuro, Rep. Cedric Asuega Gates and Rep. Andria Tupola.”

“The University of Hawaii has also created the Buffalo Keaulana Endowed Scholarship Fund to support students from the Waianae coast pursuing studies at any of its campuses.”

Comment:

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.”

Comment:

The voyaging canoe Hokulea made port Sunday, 14 August 2016, in Rhode Island after an “eerie” passage through thick fog outside of Massachusetts.  The fog presented navigational issues, including the inability to see the horizon.  However, by 10 a.m. Sunday, the thick cloud cover lifted and the Hokulea was able to continue its Malama Honua journey. The canoe is heading for New York City, where it will get a new crew and prepare for the next leg of its voyage.
