About this Event

Join us for a screening and post-film discussion with filmmaker Na'alehu Anthony and Ka'iulani Murphy, one of Hōkūleʻa's traditional navigators, about women's leadership, indigenous sovereignty and restoring our relationship to island earth.

The film. Moananuiākea: One Ocean. One People. One Canoe. is a documentary film chronicling the historic the worldwide voyage of the traditional Polynesian canoe, the Hōkūleʻa. Moananuiakea refers to the vast oceanic body of water that connects us all.

The voyage named Malama Honua, meaning “taking care of island Earth,” sailed 40,000 nautical miles to over 150 ports, connecting with indigenous peoples throughout the world. Hōkūleʻa is the first traditional Polynesian double canoe built in over 600 years, traveling the ocean using Polynesian wayfaring technology without the use of any modern instruments. She sails by the “memory of stars” connected to the shape of the ocean, the swell of waves, the movement of horizon, the winds and seabirds, and the human physical connection to all of that.
