Wa‘a Kaulua -- Restoration of Hawai‘iloa

The Friends have scheduled a monthly work day at the Pier 60 location on the 1st Saturday of each month. We arrive around 9:00 AM and report to Jerry Ongies for our work assignment.

Our biggest project for now is to refurbish the Hawai‘iloa. The Friends and METC have been contracted by Bishop Museum to complete the project.

We welcome anyone who would like to help and volunteer a few hours of their time on any day of the week or of the month. For some who we haven’t seen in a while, it would be good to get together again and catch up on lost time. We would love to hear from you.


Friends of Hokule‘a and Hawai‘iloa: “Starting with Bowman’s and continuing today, the Friends have encouraged and supported a pool of builders, assistants and apprentices who have successfully built or restored multiple traditional Hawaiian canoes.”
