On June 17, 2017, the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage returned to Hawai‘i, completing the three-year, 46,000-mile voyage through our oceans. Crewmembers were welcomed ashore with traditional Hawaiian chants. In a moving and powerful ceremony, tens of thousands welcomed Hōkūleʻa home from her unprecedented voyage around the globe.
Themed Lei Kaʻapuni Honua, meaning “A Lei Around The World,” the homecoming celebration honored the journey of connecting cultures and people across the globe. The community joined the Polynesian Voyaging Society to watch as Hōkūleʻa sailed into Magic Island along with a fleet of seven deep sea voyaging canoes from Hawaiʻi, Tahiti and Aotearoa. This historic return to Hawaiʻi was observed with a cultural welcoming ceremony followed by an all-day event filled with music and entertainment for the entire community.
