He’e Nalu Canoe Blessing

He’e Nalu Canoe Blessing

On April 27th, 2019, the He’e Nalu Outrigger Canoe Club invited us (Kahiko I Hula O Ke Anuenue of California) back to bless their new canoe “Osprey” named for the seabird that is often seen in the vicinity where the paddlers practice. Roselle and Jim, being with us for a brief stay on their return from Europe, brought a deeper understanding to the ceremony and Roselle even danced! We donned our “cellophane” skirts made from plastic bags. Our statement is to reuse and recycle – keep plastic out of our oceans!
