Album Notes

On March 8, 1975, the Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hokule`a was launched from Kualoa Beach on the island of O`ahu.

At dawn on October 8, 1999, a lookout posted at the bow of the canoe sighted a speck on the horizon. There, rising out of the clouds, was the island of Rapa Nui -- the southeastern-most corner of the Polynesian Triangle. After 25 years of open-ocean voyaging, Hokule`a and the Polynesian Voyaging Society had finally traveled to every point in the Polynesian Triangle.

Celebrating 30 years of Hokule`a, this CD is a collection of the songs and chants about the many voyages of this canoe. It is an expression of the caring, commitment, courage, and achievement that Hokule`a represents.

Those who take the time to listen might be touched by the inspiration and hope that the islands we dare to envision, can someday be reached.

All proceeds from this CD support the Polynesian Voyaging Society.
