Jack Johnson has partnered with beloved local artists Chucky Boy Chock and Paula Fuga on a song to honor Hokule?a's 40th anniversary: “Na Ho‘okele Opiopio.”
The title translates to “The Young Navigators” and honors the new generation now learning from masters like Nainoa Thompson as they sail around the globe on the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage.
Cultivating and nurturing the next generation of navigators is a key focus for the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, which seeks to educate people and communities around the world about the values of traditional wayfinding (non-instrument navigation) and the importance of caring for our Island Earth.
The song is available for download on Rallysong.com, and all proceeds benefit the Polynesian Voyaging Society. The campaign runs through April 25, and has a goal of $75,000 for the campaign.
