As Hōkūle‘a sailed around the world, one of its educational goals was to learn more about the Earth and her natural wonders. Hear from crew members as they share lessons learned from visiting areas such as the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, the Galápagos National Park, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and one of the oldest and most diverse fossil reefs in the

world, in Lake Champlain, Vermont. Learn about some of the science projects conducted while on the wa‘a (canoe) and how updates, weather, and navigation reports from aboard Hōkūle‘a and sister canoe Hikianalia were used to support classroom instruction related to navigation and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).


This program is part of a series of presentations that coincide with Bishop Museum’s Holo Moana: Generations of Voyaging exhibit in the Long Gallery from Nov. 4, 2017 thru June 24, 2018.


Traditions of the Pacific is made possible through generous support from Hawai'i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.
