Moananuiakea: A Voyage for Earth

HONOLULU (HI Now) - Polynesian voyaging canoe Hokulea is on its longest and most dangerous journey yet — a four-year, 43,000 nautical mile circumnavigation of the Pacific.

Along the way, some 400 crew members will travel to 36 countries and 100 indigenous territories.

Hawaii News Now was invited to document the beginning of the journey in Alaska and has compiled a new special — called “Moananuiakea: A Voyage for Earth” — that underscores the history nature of the voyage.
