"The mission of Hōkūle‘a’s Worldwide Voyage is to navigate toward a healthy and sustainable future for ourselves, our home – the Hawaiian Islands – and our Island Earth through voyaging and new ways of learning. Our core message is to mālama (care for) Island Earth – our natural environment, children and all humankind. In early May 2014, the two wa‘a kaulua will sail toTahiti, the first international leg of the Worldwide Voyage."
