    Tonight (Thursday, Aug. 17) at 6:30 p.m., Kamehameha Schools Maui invites the public to come and listen to stories from crew members of their three-year worldwide voyage and how they spread the message Mālama Honua.  The Huliau Film & Lecture Series will begin a new series called Ola ʻo Maui Nui starting with a presentation by crew members of the Hawaiian sailing canoes, Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia.
