Monday Movie Nights: MOANANUIĀKEA: ONE OCEAN. ONE PEOPLE. ONE CANOE.
October 14, 2019 at 6:00pm
MOANANUIĀKEA is a feature-length documentary about Hōkūleʻa’s most ambitious journey to date: the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage.
In 1976, a voyaging canoe sparked a cultural revival that quickly spread throughout Polynesia, breathing life into ancient myths and legends. More than four decades later, Hōkūleʻa continues to inspire a new generation of navigators and voyagers to gather their courage and sail beyond the horizon of the Pacific. MOANANUIĀKEA: ONE OCEAN. ONE PEOPLE. ONE CANOE. celebrates the historic Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage that connected countless individuals and communities from around the globe. This voyage also represented the fulfillment of the vision of Nainoa Thompson and his contemporaries, the passing of the mantle of celestial navigation to the next generation of kānaka maoli who will retain the skills of their ancestors and perpetuate this tradition for generations to come.
