Description:The double-hulled Hawai'iloa is a reproduction of ancient Polynesian voyaging canoes that sailed thousands of miles across the Pacific. There is one big difference: the Hawai'iloa was made from Alaskan Sitka spruce not koa. In The Voyage Home, the canoe and crew journey the inside passage from Seattle to Juneau on a voyage of goodwill and discovery. Created by a largely indigenous production crew (Producer/Director Karin Williams is an Aotearoa-born Cook Islander), the film presents the sight of a Polynesian catamaran visiting the home of Salish, Tlingit, and Haida peoples in Alaska.
