Reflections on Crew Selection

In May 2022, Hōkūleʻa successfully traveled the ancient sea corridor Kealaikahiki (Road to Tahiti), led by Hōkūleʻa’s first female captain and navigator, Lehua Kamalu. In advance of the voyage, she reflects on selecting crew members from across generations, the weight of the responsibility, and bringing together people who represent everything Hōkūleʻa stands for.
