Translation: Star of Gladness
Perhaps no other vessel on Earth has borne witness to adventure like Hawai‘i’s Hōkūle'a voyaging canoe. Hōkūle'a has followed the stars, ridden ocean swells, and sailed around the entire world. Paying homage to this voyaging canoe and its legacy of exploration and courage, every stitch in the premium full-grain leather Hōkūle'a Kia is a celebration of that intrepid spirit.
