Hōkūleʻa’s “Birthday to Earth Day” Celebration: Help us celebrate 40 years of voyaging and wayfinding!

We have embarked on a Worldwide Voyage to find the solutions we need for a healthy environment.

Help us celebrate Hōkūleʻa’s birthday and our Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage by sharing with us a story of a person, place, or community that can inspire us all to care for our environment–our Island Earth.

The Mālama Honua Movement

IMG_4250Mālama Honua means to care for our Island Earth, but it is really so much more than that. Mālama Honua is a state-of-being. It is mindfulness that in every action we take, every choice afforded to us, we can choose a path that is compassionate to both our environment and to one other. Mālama Honua is the foundational value that is driving the Worldwide Voyage and it is allowing us to connect with communities and cultures across the globe.
When Master Navigator Nainoa Thompson talks with schools and organizations about the Worldwide Voyage, he compares the people, places and ideas that are connected through the voyage to flowers of a Hawaiian lei. As people like you engage in the voyage, this “lei of hope” begins encircling our Island Earth.

Exactly what does this lei look like? We are excited to share with you a new interactive map that includes 40th anniversary wishes for Hōkūleʻa to carry around the world, stories of hope, and affirmations to Mālama Honua (care for Island Earth), from like-minded individuals like you around the globe.

Please have a look and explore this growing community of people who, together, can create a pathway of hope for future generations. And if you havenʻt already, please fill out the form at the top of this page and join us in the movement to Mālama Honua our Island Earth.
