The Voyage of Hokule’a – Malama Honua
Several Ocean Elders attended the launch of Hokule’a and its sister vessel, Hikianalia in support of fellow Ocean Elder Nainoa Thompson and all of the Polynesian Voyaging Society as they embarked on their worldwide voyage. This is a monumental 3-4 year journey to learn, create global relationships, and explore how to care for our oceans and island earth. Pictured below are the two vessels (Hokule’a in front) flanked by paddlers as they left the harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. Ocean Elders pictured from left to right are Jackson Browne, Nainoa Thompson, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Capt. Don Walsh, and Dr. Sylvia Earle.
