A thousand people gathered at Auke Bay in Juneau on Saturday to welcome the Hōkūle‘a and her crew to Juneau. Now, the crew is preparing to embark on a four-year journey around the world.
The journey that sets out from Juneau next week is called Moananuiākea, and the crew’s goal is to learn about land stewardship and unity from Indigenous communities throughout the Pacific Ocean.
