All of us teachers from all over the islands, we’re working together and using the Worldwide Voyage as a way to really gather our kids and teach them how important Hawaiʻi is [and] more importantly how important their place that they’re from or they relate to, how they need to protect it. And a way you can protect your place, first thing you need to know about it.

I think for these particular teachers, it’s reminding them that with all the other stuff that is in education at the moment, that there’s something bigger, there’s some more important.

We’re working on relationships, we’re building ties, we’re making connections to each other. And we’re see what we do here connects to their class and what they’re trying to teach

Live Tracking Map – Worldwide Voyage

Track Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia as they voyage around the world. The green line is the reference course designed by the navigators for reaching the destination from the departure point, given the capabilities of the vessel and the winds, currents, and weather conditions anticipated along the way. The yellow line tracks the progress of Hokulea while the red line follows Hikianalia. For more information on the PVS voyaging fleet, click here.
