Aloha Tautira Supporters!

With your generous contributions we have met our goal! Thank you so much for all that you have done to support this fund. Our Tautira Ohana had an amazing time at the homecoming and it was all the more meaningful because we were able to share the experience with them. Hokule'a and PVS continue to connect all the Ohana Wa'a throughout the world and it would not be possible without your kokua.

Mahalo nui,
PVS

More Info

There are many, many folks out there who have helped and supported our crews throughout this Mālama Honua voyage and over the last 44 years. One special community that has supported us for more than 40 years is the wonderful group of families from Tautira, Tahiti. 

They adopted Hōkūleʻa and her crew members back in 1976, and have continued to care for Hōkūleʻa, those crew members and every crew member who has come to Tautira since, including those sailing in on Hikianalia.  Tautira is truly our home in Tahiti, and the Tautira families are integral members of our ʻohana waʻa.  Many of you have been fortunate to have been hosted and cared for by this kind and respectful community. For those who have not yet had the privilege, you can ask anyone who has: the Tautira community is awesome!  It is a truly enriching experience to be in Tautira.

And now we are truly happy to be able to host these wonderful families for the homecoming.  Lodging has been taken care of for these families by one crew member, so we would like to reimburse her as much as possible, not including the portion that she has already removed from the total for her own donation.  Any assistance that you can offer, financially or otherwise, would be much appreciated.

Mahalo nui loa in advance for any kōkua you can share, especially for our very special Tautira ʻOhana.

E mālama pono,

PVS Leadership
