He wa‘a he moku, he moku he wa‘a. The canoe is an island, an island a canoe. This course traces the history and craft of Hawaiian ocean voyaging, from its origins and earliest traditions, to the contemporary, worldwide voyage of Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia. We also discuss the importance of caring for where we live. Like the seafarers of old, we need to practice sustainability, as well as respect for the ʻāina (land) and each other, in order to survive on our “island”—Earth. Family activities and social media challenges give learners the opportunity to aʻo aku, aʻo mai (to learn, to share) with their ‘ohana.
