The purpose of the Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Voyaging Society is to perpetuate through education and experience the Hawaiian culture of traditional long distance outrigger canoe voyaging throughout all the Hawaiian islands and around the entire world globe; to uphold the unique and fragile beauty and power of our ocean; to practice our obligation of responsible stewardship and harmony with nature; to strengthen cultural and spiritual connections to the Hawaiian Islands and ka Honua kākou, our mother earth; and to experience the harmony, respect, and strength that is harvested when we paddle together with one mind, one heart, and one energy to our destination.
The Pathway of our Ancestors. Through outrigger canoe voyaging, we embrace and nurture a special connection to our ancestors. We enjoy the privilege of sharing the same space in a different time and in doing so honor our past and our rich heritage.
