There’s a new crew aboard the Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia. The two canoes have reached Mo‘orea and are now on the second leg of their voyage around the world. HPR’s Molly Solomon got an update from crew member Kaimana Barcarse as part of our ongoing series, “Hōkūle‘a: Voyage of Aloha.”

The two canoes will leave Mo‘orea and continue through the Society Islands, the Cook Islands and on to Samoa at the end of August. You can also follow the journey of the Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia online.

And now an update on the voyaging canoes Hokule'a and Hikianalia. The two canoes have spent over a week in Papa’ete, Tahiti – where master navigator Nainoa Thompson was recently inducted into the order of Tahiti Nui with a medal of recognition. HPR’s Molly Solomon checked in with Hokulea crew member Linda Furuto…as part of our ongoing series, “Hokule’a: Voyage of Aloha.”

Those are the sounds of crew members Kalā Baybayan and Saki Uchida. They're on board the voyaging canoe Hikianalia, as she and her sister canoe Hokule’a made landfall on the island of Rangiroa. HPR’s Molly Solomon spoke with Hokulea navigator Ka`iulani Murphy and has this Malama Honua update.

Hokule’a and Hikianalia will spend the night at Rangiroa before setting off for Papa’ete, Tahiti on Wednesday.
