Hōkūleʻa is in NYC through June 18, leading a campaign that advocates for our oceans and planet by highlighting modern and the traditional solutions practiced by cultures around the world.
Hōkūleʻa is a traditionally built Polynesian voyaging canoe, currently on a three-year voyage around the world without the assist of modern technologies like compasses and GPS. Instead they are using a traditional technique called “wayfinding” – by which you use the sun, moon and stars, to navigate.
While here, Hōkūleʻa will participate in World Oceans Day on June 8, 2016, and in the Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge June 11th. She has a full-schedule of events – from story-telling to canoe tours – it’s a once in a life-time experience not to be missed!
– June 16-18: Community Outreach at Governors Island
