Hōkūle‘a and Hikianalia, are two Polynesian voyaging canoes, who are sailing across Earth’s oceans to join and grow a global movement toward a more sustainable world.
The Hōkūle‘a outrigger canoe made a stop in Rhode Island, and in the tradition of Canoe societies, asked permission of the Narragansett nation to come ashore and visit with nation members. This episode of the Indigenous Lifeways podcast introduces you to the crew of the Hōkūle‘a and explains a little bit about the mission of the voyage that is underway.
