The stars of the sky have long provided kanaka with the path to where we are now. These stars, currents, and makani made way to finding Ka Pae ʻĀina and will continue to guide us in our future endeavors to connect us to our ever-changing honua. One example of this connection is Mālama Honua and the Hōkūleʻa Voyage.
When focusing on the migration of the Hawaiian people, please answer the following questions:
1. Why did kanaka migrate to Hawaiʻi? What were some reasons that you may know?
2. What type of resources did they bring on their journey when leaving another kaiāulu/moku? If you were voyaging now, what type of resources would you bring our your voyage?
3. Ultimately, migration somehow connects us all. How do the Hōkūleʻa and its voyage around the world connect us to others around the world? What was the mission or goal for the Hōkūleʻa voyage? Do you think the Hōkūleʻa accomplished its goal with the Mālama Honua?
