Homecoming Reflection with ʻĀina Paikai: WWV Leg 29 (Rapa Nui to Tahiti)

Each of our ʻŌiwi TV photographers who were crew members on board Hōkūleʻa and/or Hikianalia for the Mālama Honua Wolrdwide Voyage were asked to share a short story about one of the many photographs that they took on each of their legs. Accompanying this single photo however are other photos that they chose to share in a gallery to add to the overall experience and memory. Join us behind the scenes.

Through Digital Channel 326, ʻŌiwi TV reaches over 220,000 households across the entire State via Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s network. Through its website, mobile, and social media venues, ʻŌiwi TV is reaching Hawaiians everywhere and engaging a generation of Hawaiians that expect to access anything and everything from anywhere at anytime.
