The Story

Kimokeo Kapahulehua is a man with a kuleana; a promise to keep. Not just to his uncle Kavika or Hawaii, but to all people and generations, past and future. His kuleana is to link the Hawaiian islands together like a lei. And for the first time in recorded history, it will be done in an outrigger paddling canoe (wa’a). 6 years and 1750 miles later, he and his team find they have done more than complete their voyage to honor Kimokeo’s kuleana; they have become the Family of the Wa’a.
