For the first time in 14 years, Hōkūleʻa returned to Papeʻete

Tahiti Arrival 

For the first time in 14 years, Hōkūleʻa returned to Papeʻete, the landfall for her maiden voyage from Hawaiʻi in 1976 where 17,000 Tahitians welcomed her… emotions experienced by crew members and those who gathered to greet the crew provided a strong and heartfelt connection. The arrival of the crew marks completion of the first leg of the voyage and success to be celebrated throughout Hawaiʻi. Click on the photo above to go directly to our video commemorating this historic arrival.

Crew Profile: Haunani Kane

Haunani Kane: a small girl in size, yet plays a big role with regard to her navigational studies and leadership, in coordinating science projects during the Worldwide Voyage. Producer of the Crew Profile series, Kuʻulei Bezilla, was most inspired by the words of Nainoa Thompson, while creating this piece. Nainoa references being near the “wave”, that wave being the upcoming navigators/ leadership of the future of Hawaiʻi. Click the image above to learn more about the “wave” and apprentice navigator Haunani.

“Nā Loea: The Masters”
Keone Nunes: Ancestral Ink

This is the story of traditional Hawaiian kākau (tattoo) artist, Keone Nunes, and the journey of cultural re-discovery inherent in kākau uhi (tattooing). The process of kākau uhi is one where the artist guides their subjects down a path of self-discovery, revealing life lessons of who they are and where they come from. Traditional kākau is an art that was nearly lost to Hawaiians, but Keone’s perseverance to learn, practice and teach this craft has been a critical determiner of its survival and resurgence in the Hawaiian community today.

to register.

Location: Jodo Mission of Hawaii, 1429 Makiki St.
Registration Deadline: Thursday, July 17.

Join us for this hands-on beginner level session where participants will learn Design Thinking by doing. Design Thinking is a five-step human-centered problem solving process made famous by David Kelley of IDEO and Stanford University. Design Thinking captures the essence of innovation and puts it into an iterative process that will benefit nonprofit operations. This workshop is great for board and staff.

Design Thinking is used by the world’s greatest innovators -  Apple, Google, FedEx, GE, as well as leaders in state, city, county government, and educators around the world who are transforming their organizations and culture.  In this 3-hour session, you will empathize with a partner about their needs for an everyday product (to be announced), you will discover and define your partner’s needs, ideate new ideas, and then build a prototype that you will test with your partner.

You will also experience the Design Thinking mindsets and philosophy:

  • Human centered
  • Bias toward action
  • Radical collaboration
  • Culture of prototyping
  • Show don’t tell
  • Mindful of process

Ian Kitajima and Raviraj Pare of Oceanit lend their design thinking skills on advance research projects for the US Marines, Office of Naval Research, Dept of Energy, NOAA, State of Hawaii (Dept of Education, Dept of Health, Broadband, OIMT, Office of Planning), City of Honolulu, and many others. They have facilitated workshops for over 2000+ people in Design Thinking. Ian is the co-founder of the annual Design Thinking Hawaii bootcamp and Raviraj is Oceanit’s Design Thinking guru, and is a graduate of Stanford University’s world renowned “”

Through generous sponsorship from Design Thinking Hawaii and Oceanit, this training, usually valued at $150, is being offered to HANO members at an amazingly discounted rate!
