Maui Divers Jewelry proudly dedicates our beautiful Voyaging Canoe pendant to help bring awareness to the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s mission to increase the global movement towards a more sustainable world.
Many centuries ago, voyaging canoes brought the first Polynesians to the archipelago of Hawai`i….but these canoes disappeared, never to be found again. Then in the 1970s, the dream of reviving the legacy of exploration, courage, and ingenuity these canoes represented, was resurrected with Hokule`a, the Star of Gladness. To this day, she continues to represent the common desire shared by the people of Hawaii, the Pacific, and the whole world, to protect our most cherished values and places from disappearing.
Hokule`a is among the canoes that have now been launched on Mālama Honua (to care for our earth) Worldwide Voyage. Guided only by the direction of waves, winds, birds and stars to navigate the oceans, they will be traveling 47,000 miles and visiting 26 countries. This journey will celebrate the diverse cultures and natural treasures of each destination, and emphasize the importance of protecting them.
Maui Divers Jewelry has pledged to support Mālama Honua by donating a portion of the proceeds for each Voyaging Canoe pendant sold. For more information about the Polynesian Voyaging Society and to track the progress of the voyage underway, please visit www.hokulea.com.
