Hui O Wa’a Kaulua
Hui O Wa’a Kaulua is a 501(c)3 non-profit cultural organization that, primarily through the life of canoes, commits to preserving, protecting, perpetuating, and teaching Hawaiian culture to all who are willing to learn and understand. Founded in 1975, Hui O Wa’a Kaulua (Assembly of the Double-Hulled Canoe) is the first organization of its kind on the island of Maui. The Hui is on the threshold of completing a 62-foot double-hull voyaging canoe named Mo’okiha O Pi’ilani, capable of transoceanic voyages to the other island groups of Polynesia, following in the footsteps of the voyaging canoe, Hokule’a.
