Native Hawaiian Scientists depart for Papahānaumokuākea
A hui of Native Hawaiians departed from Kāneʻohe Bay on Saturday, July 31, to embark on a 15-day scientific research voyage into the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument that is supported in part by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.
Sailing aboard the Makani ʻOlu, a 96-foot, triple-masted schooner, the 12 Native Hawaiian researchers will visit the most eastern islands in the monument: Nihoa, Mokumanamana and Lalo (French Frigate Shoals).
