Voyaging Canoes Visit Local Schools in Aotearoa

It’s been five months since the voyaging canoes H?k?le‘a and Hikianalia began their sail around the world. The two canoes are making their way through Aotearoa, or New Zealand, where they’ll stay for the next six months. We checked in with Punahou middle school teacher and H?k?le‘a education specialist, Kaniela Lyman-Mersereau, as part of our ongoing series H?k?le‘a: Voyage of Aloha.

The extended stay means crew members will continue to participate in educational outreach while also making repairs to the canoes.
