Nā wahine o ke kai (women of the sea)
Hōkūle‘a, our Star of Gladness, began as a vision of reviving the legacy of exploration, courage, reverence, and compassion that brought the first Polynesians to the archipelago of Hawai‘i. The mission of the Worldwide Voyage (2013-2017) is to Mālama Honua, care for Island Earth, by bridging ancient and modern wisdom for a more sustainable world. Hōkūle‘a is a vehicle to explore research, theory, and praxis, including equitable, high quality mathematics education that serves to re-empower diverse populations through experiential, real-world applications. The nā wahine o ke kai (women of the sea) plenary panel presented on canoe to classroom journeys at the Smithsonian Institution Pacific Festival.
