The Latest: Crew member says ancestors led way in journey

The crew of the Hokulea used only those techniques to make the journey. "This is so powerful".
Hokulea means star of gladness. "We are overwhelmed with emotion at all we have accomplished during this historic voyage and we look forward to setting sail on the next chapter together".
"Thank you, Hawaii. Thank you for the moment", Thompson said.
The Hokulea and its sister ship, Hikianalia, covered a combined 60,000 nautical miles, over 150 ports, and 23 countries and territories, the Polynesian Voyaging Society website reported.
He was among the last half-dozen people in the world to practice the art of traditional navigation, and he agreed to guide Hokulea to Tahiti in 1976.
"Through her voyages, Hokule'a has sparked a reawakening of Hawaiian culture, language, identity and revitalised voyaging and navigation traditions throughout the Pacific Ocean", voyage organisers said. Eddie Aikau, a revered surfer and lifeguard on the crew, grabbed his surfboard and set out to paddle for help, but was never seen again. The rest of the crewmembers were rescued.
Native Hawaiian ancestors were not only skilled navigators but good stewards of the islands who farmed and fished sustainably. They managed to find one of the most elusive of the Easter Islands, a major accomplishment for traditional sailors. "And I think that is the challenge of the time for planet earth and all of humanity".
Fish they caught for meals never went to waste, even when they once landed a 49-pound ahi, crew member Naalehu Anthony, who participated in about half-a-dozen legs of the voyage, recalled in a blog post.
"The fish was plenty for us for the day", he wrote.
"We have unlimited supply of nice, ocean-temperature saltwater available", he said, explaining that crewmembers threw a bucket attached to a rope overboard to scoop up water for bathing. They faced risky waters in South Africa, the halfway point of the trip.
Last week the crew spotted the 10,023-foot (3,055-meter) high Maui mountain Haleakala looming in the distance, signifying Hokulea's official return to Hawaii waters. Thompson said Hokulea will travel around the Hawaiian islands for the next eight months, visiting local communities and the crew will share what they learned.
