It’s been two years since H?k?le‘a left the islands and has traveled more about 30,000 miles. We checked in with crew member N?‘?lehu Anthony… as part of our ongoing coverage…H?k?le‘a: Voyage  of Aloha.

The canoe will depart the nation’s capital later this week…with plans to reach New York City in June for World Oceans Day on June 8.
