The voyaging canoe Hokulea is continuing its East Coast journey with a stop in Boston.

Residents and representatives from the Massachusett Tribe welcomed the crew around 5 p.m. at Fan Pier. The welcome ceremony also included performances by a Boston hula halau, Samoan dancers and Native American dancers and drummers.

During its four-day stay in Boston, the crew will hold public canoe tours and also meet with local Native American communities, schools and maritime groups.

Hokulea is scheduled to depart Boston on July 14, where it will venture to Salem next.
