Hokule'a and Hikianalia Powhiri

“E Oho Ra e" Sorry about that I was just practicing my waiata For the Hokule'a for when they come. On Wednesday morning Pt England and the other Manaiakalani schools gathered on Pt England beach and you can’t even imagine how many people were there. When all of the Manaiakalani schools got to the beach we did have a talk with our friends but then we saw the hikianalia waka coming then we all went silent. I felt so excited because this is my first time seeing the Hokule'a and Hikianalia Wakas. We welcomed them with a Powhiri then they welcomed us back with a Powhiri. At the end each of us got to high five each of them and saying "Aloha".

  1. This was a very special event for us wasn't it? I did enjoy reading about your experience . I am pleased we have so many beautiful pieces of writing and photos to help us remember it.
