Hikianalia is the companion sailing canoe of the iconic Hōkūle‘a and summons the wayfaring wisdom passed down by its Hawaiian ancestors to navigate the sea.
Join OluKai and the Polynesian Voyaging Society in making a pledge to eliminate single use plastics from your life. The voyage will continue the Mālama Honua campaign to inspire action toward an environmentally and culturally thriving world. Together, we can affect change and Mālama Honua, care for Island Earth.
Hikianalia is the companion sailing canoe of the iconic Hōkūle‘a and summons the wayfaring wisdom passed down by its Hawaiian ancestors to navigate the sea. Hikianalia and Polynesian Voyaging Society crew members pair this traditional knowledge with state-of-the-art eco-conscious tech to accomplish long-distance deep-sea voyages — all without relying on modern day GPS.
Her California journey is a continuation of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, the historic three-year campaign circumnavigating the globe with a zero-carbon footprint to inspire greater environmental stewardship across continents.
Imagine: If you were to string the 500 million single-use straws consumed per day together, you could circumnavigate the planet 2.5 times more than two Mālama Honua voyages. If we move forward together, we can reverse this.
It‘s 2,800 miles from Hawai‘i to California. Powered by only wind and waves, Hikianalia will cross the Alahula Kai o Maleka (“the frequented seaward path to America”) and arrives in San Francisco to participate in the Global Climate Action Summit. While making the approximately 30-day sail to California on a vessel powered by wind and sun, the crew will demonstrate the important relationship between humanity and the natural environment as the crew navigates their way to California using cues from nature, rather than a GPS or other modern navigational instruments, to guide the way.
To commemorate this voyage, we have created a limited edition leather sandal. Laser-etched footbed graphic depicts not only the proud canoe, but also the reflection in the ocean of the star line Kaiwikuamoʻo and the constellation Hānaiakamalama – a guiding light of ancient navigators for finding the Hawaiian Islands.
Reducing single use plastics, starts with you and the decisions we make everyday on how we consume. Sign the pledge today to be mindful and reduce your use of single-use plastics. It‘s a critical step that starts right here by clearing a plastic-free path for Hikianalia’s ocean voyage.
