“MOANANUIĀKEA: ONE OCEAN. ONE PEOPLE. ONE CANOE.” celebrates the historic Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage that connected countless individuals and communities from around the globe. This voyage also represented the fulfillment of the vision of Nainoa Thompson and his contemporaries, the passing of 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.
This event will feature an ʻŌpio Meet & Greet Mixer prior to the screening, where youth from the community will be able to meet their featured “Hometown Heroes,” hear their moʻolelo about the voyage, and learn about the work they are doing in their communities.
Featured Hometown Heroes: Kaʻiulani Murphy, Pōmai Bertelmann & Pua Lincoln.
This free event is presented by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.
