Moananuiakea: One Ocean. One Canoe. One People

Egyptian Theatre, Thursday, May 2

These days, news and ideas are often spread online with nothing but the compression of the enter key. But in Hawaii, a team of environmental crusaders went about sharing their hopes for the future a different way: by sailing a single canoe across the globe, making stops to teach environmental stewardship and the protection of cultural resources. The trip, dubbed the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, stretched from 2013 through 2018, making stops in 150 ports, 23 countries and territories, and eight Marine World Heritage sites. Now, the journey has been immortalized on film in the documentary Moananuiakea: One Ocean. One Canoe. One People., and it's coming to Boise Thursday, May 2. Don't forget your sailor suit.
