Washington D.C. Welcomes Hokulea
Voyaging canoe Hōkūle‘a was greeted by hula dancers and a canoe club, as she sailed up the Potomac River into Washington DC.
It’s been two years since Hōkūle‘a left the islands and has traveled more about 30,000 miles. We checked in with crew member Nā‘ālehu Anthony… as part of our ongoing coverage…Hōkūle‘a: Voyage of Aloha.
The canoe will depart the nation’s capital later this week…with plans to reach New York City in June for World Oceans Day on June 8.
