The Hokule'a Polynesian Voyage Malama Honua in Cook Islands

The Hokule'a is a full-scale replica of a Polynesian voyaging canoe. She is currently sailing 47,000 miles around the world on a 2 year voyage known as Malama Honua ("To Care for our Earth") without engine power.

This interview was at Muri Lagoon, Rarotonga, Cook Islands on August 5, 2014. Richard and I stumbled on this group near our hotel and did a quick interview. On August 6 she departed the Cooks for Samoa. She is currently still in the South Pacific near the Swains Islands. Her crew was recently greeted by the U.N. Secretary General.
