Happy 49th Birthday Hōkūleʻa

Hauʻoli La Hanau Hōkūleʻa! 49 years ago today you slid into your ocean home for the first time.  You have carried us near and far and awakened dreams for more than anyone could have imagined, and we remain forever grateful. On behalf of all who love you, some of our crew members and ʻohana happily answered our call for birthday wishes – may you continue to guide and inspire us all.
