The Journey of Hokulea

by Joni Kamiya, Hawaii Farmers Daughter, June, 2017

They voyaging canoe, the Hokulea, arrived in Honolulu yesterday which was a tremendous feat after traveling the globe.  Millions watched as it sailed into the shore. A long journey was completed.

If it were not for the brave souls who decided to collect information from the wind, stars, weather, and ocean currents, what we know as Native Hawaiians may have not arrived here in Hawaii. As Hokulea traveled the world following the ancient ways, it’s a reminder that someone must take that first brave step to change the future.

Is it good to be clinging to the relics of old and be blinded to what the future holds? Or do we use the past as a reminder of what our ancestors did to get us where we are today?

To look well into the universe to see beyond what we know is like jumping into that canoe and taking a new journey for the people of Hawaii and even humanity.
