Where in the world is the Hokulea?

After leaving Martha’s Vineyard on Friday, the voyaging canoe and its crew have made their way to Woods Hole, Mass.

Hokulea crew members will remain in the community through the holiday weekend, and then make their way to Boston.

In Woods Hole, Hokulea crew members met with representatives of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribal nation and participated in a welcoming ceremony.

On Saturday, Hokulea crew will attend the Mashpee Wampanoag’s 95th annual powwow.

The Mashpee Wampanoag have lived in present-day Massachusetts for more than 12,000 years.

Hokulea is on a worldwide voyage, which began in 2013 and is expected to wrap up next June.

Since leaving Hawaiian waters in May 2014, Hokulea has sailed more than 26,000 nautical miles, and made stops in 70 ports.
