The sailing of the Hokule'a from Honolua Bay to the Polynesian triangle in 1976 was a historical moment for Hawaiians and our cousins throughout Polynisia. I was fortunate to have been invited to participate in this historic event that reestablished our connection throughout the polynisian triangle - Hawai'i, Rapanui (Easter island) and Aoetearoa (New Zealand). These pictures (below) are of our sister islands, a very important part of the Pae 'Aina O Hawai'i (archipelago).
This page is my repository of articles and pictures about Hokule'a and Polynesian Voyaging.
