From the time of Hōkūleʻaʻs first voyage to Tahiti in 1976, there has been a constant restacking of the stones in reestablishing traditional knowledge of celestial navigation. With Hōkūleʻaʻs being the first pōhaku, many other canoes have been built upon the same foundation. Today there are numerous double-hulled sailing canoes throughout the Pacific following in her footsteps, serving as platforms of learning and culture and language revitalization. This school year (2021-22) the 11th grade class at Ke Kula ʻo Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu studied celestial navigation, the physics of sailing, and traditional Hawaiian practices of building a canoe. They also researched the history of Hawaiʻiʻs ʻOhana Waʻa by selecting one canoe, gathering information, and interviewing a person tied to the canoe. Below are a few short videos of some of their findings or lessons they have learned. 

 

  • No Hōkūleʻa (na Kahaukepa ʻAipia-Peters, Kalaʻi Fragas-VanBlarcom)

 

  • No Hawaiʻiloa (na Kahiwa Shin, Kawai Wilbur-Gabriel, Kyana Gabriel)

 

  • No Hōkūalakaʻi (na ʻŌnohi Pacheco, Kahaliʻa Masaoka, Kepoʻinalu Alameda)
