HUI O WA’A KAULUA FUNDRAISER
“GATHERING OF THE VOYAGERS”
HUI O WA’A KAULUA is having their First Annual Gathering of the Voyagers on Sunday, December 6, 2009 at 525 Front Street, Kamehameha Iki Park in Lahaina, home of the Hui and their canoes Mo`olele, Mo`okiha and Waipa.
This event is to support continued efforts to preserve and perpetuate our culture and move forward with the Mo`okiha’s completion. The event will feature Maui’s own “Willie K” (who by the way is the organization’s president). There will be arts and crafts, silent auction, food, and Hui merchandise available for purchase. Come and join us at our fundraiser and meet Hawaii’s voyagers and Maui’s growing community of voyagers. The cost is $25 and tickets can be purchased at the office at 525 Front Street.
Mo`okiha O Pi`ilani is a 62 feet voyaging canoe which is under construction and with the Hui’s and community efforts we hope to complete her soon. Currently adult crew training and youth programs are done using the 42 feet interisland sailing canoe Mo`olele. Both canoes are housed at 525 Front Street in Lahaina, along with Waipa, a 33 feet single hull sailing canoe, launched at the 2006 Celebration of Canoes.
