Living on a voyaging canoe for up to 30 days at a time with 12 -14 crew members teaches us all how to live in harmony with one another and how to learn from nature to reach our destination safely. Every leg of the Worldwide Voyage will be filled with rich learning experiences aboard Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia: our “floating classrooms”. Join us as we explore the wonders of our blue planet.
To teach the students, you have to engage the teachers first. And the teaches need to believe in what you are doing is meaningful and transformative.
Aʻo Hawaiʻi is a partnership between the College of Education at UH-Mānoa, the Polynesian Voyaging Society and other community groups to promote the educational mission of the Worldwide Voyage.
As Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia travel across the globe, they will carry the aspirations of these educators with them.
