On June 5, the Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hōkūle‘a will arrive in New York City—Lenape Territory—as a part of its worldwide voyage called Mālama Honua (to care for our earth). The Hōkūle‘a uses no modern navigational instruments, but instead ongoing Hawaiian creative practices that read the sun, moon, stars, clouds, winds, waves, and the patterns of a diversity of nonhuman species to find their way. The NYC-arrival ceremony will take place at North Cove Marina, and a series of programs and workshops are planned for the following week, including a lecture by Dr. Lilikalā Kame’eleihiwa (June 6) and a hula and chanting workshop (June 8).
