The Polynesian Voyaging Canoes Hōkūleʻa & Hikianalia arrived at Palekai this morning to a few hundred people who had gathered to welcome the crew with traditional hawaiian protocol and ʻoli. Students of Keaukaha Elementary, Ke Ana La’ahana, and Ka Umeke Schools welcomed our voyagers to Moku O Keawe. They gave powerful and inspiring presentations and all who were in attendance felt blessed to be there.The waʻa and their crews will be in Hilo all week before they leave for Tahiti, this Saturday.
