The Hawaiʻi House of Representatives welcomed Amy Hanaialiʻi at the State Capitol on Friday as she sang “The Queens Prayer” for Representative Angus McKelvey’s invocation.
Hanaialiʻi happened to be at the State Capitol to give a Grant-in-aid presentation for Hui o Waʻa Kaulua a non-profit for which she is a board member.
Hui o Wa’a Kaulua (“Assembly of the Double-Hull Canoe”) was formed in 1975 on Maui to practice, perpetuate and educate the community on Hawaiian canoe building, wayfinding, celestial navigation, and voyaging arts.
In partnership with local schools and community groups, Hui o Wa’a Kaulua is developing and expanding voyaging and educational programs across Maui through their Floating Classroom Project.
Their mission is to inspire all generations improving knowledge of sustainability, Hawaiian culture, and health through canoe voyaging and ancient teachings.
