    Legendary voyaging canoe Hōkūleʻa is continuing to visit communities in the New England area.

    The canoe was greeted by representatives from the Massachusett Tribe and a large crowd of residents when she arrived in Boston at Fan Pier over the weekend.

    Hōkūleʻa is scheduled to stay in Boston for four days during which the crew will hold public canoe tours, meet with local Native American communities, schools and maritime groups.

    Prior to arriving in Boston, Hōkūleʻa spent three days in New Bedford, MA, where the crew conducted canoe tours and dockside activities.  The canoe is scheduled to depart Boston on July 14, and then sail to Salem, MA.
