In this episode, we’re at the Mālama Honua celebration in Honolulu, welcoming home the Hōkūle‘a. For three years, the historic polynesian voyaging canoe sailed around the world—using traditional navigation to unite indigenous cultures and inspire stewardship to care for our island Earth. Hōkūle‘a was welcomed home on June 17th, 2017 by a huge celebration with over fifty thousand people from around the world, traditional arrival ceremonies not witnessed for hundreds of years, and a multi-day summit to share, plan, and navigate the next leg of the journey: 2017 Mahalo, Hawai‘i Sail. In this historic episode, we celebrate with original Hōkūle‘a builder and crew member John Kruse, navigator Ka‘iulani Murphy, science specialist Anuschka Faucci, chief operations officer Heidi Guth, and other important crew members at the Mālama Honua celebration in Honolulu.
