Hokule`a arriving at Hanalei pier on Sunday 9/24.

Hokule`a will be arriving at the Hanalei pier on Sunday 9/24, ETA 10:00 AM. There will be full protocol to greet her with chanting and hula. This is something worth experiencing. My kumu hula will be doing the protocol and my halau will be dancing.

That's great. If you're on the island, you shouldn't miss this historic moment.

We saw both the Hokule‘a and her sister ship, the Hikinalia at the Hanalei Pier four years ago. If you have the chance to see her, go!

If you're on Kaua`i, do go.

It's wonderful to see the Hōkūle`a.

The protocol is also a special experience.

This will be an awing occasion.

If you have an Instagram account, @discoverkauai shows a video of Hokule’a arriving in Hanalei.

Here’s a link, but not sure it will work.

I was there. Unfortunately it was almost impossible for attendees to see much of the protocol or performances. The organizers pretty much shut us out, including me even though I was supposed to be taking pictures for my halau when they performed. They did allow me to stand at the front of the spectators but I couldnʻt see past other halau grouped at the end of the pier waiting to perform and the many random people who were allowed to go past the "guards." Mostly we saw Hokule`a and Hikianalia come in, and we could hear the chanting. Overall, rather disappointing. I think they should have done it on the beach as Iʻm told was originally planned. There were a lot of people crowded onto the Hanalei pier.

Yup, that was my experience, too. Not much thought went into where people would be. Lots of asking people to move back, when there isn't anywhere to move back too. Gotta get the people furthest back to start moving, first. Still interesting to be there.

Too bad it was so hard to see & experience it; I was wishing I could've been there to see it.

Here's a link to the story in the paper about it:
