Moananuiākea is a feature-length documentary film telling the story of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage of legendary canoe Hōkūleʻa. The three-year voyage connected countless individuals and communities from around the globe. It was also the fulfillment of the vision of pwo navigator Nainoa Thompson and his contemporaries, to pass the mantle of celestial navigation to the next generation of kānaka maoli who will retain the skills of their ancestors and perpetuate this tradition for generations to come.

The film is presented by the Polynesian Voyaging Society and ʻŌiwi TV and produced by Nāʻālehu Anthony, Bryson Hoe, and Maui Tauotaha, all of whom served as crew members on Hōkūleʻa.
