Since introducing our Nā Koa Makapo program earlier this summer we have had a great time both teaching and learning from our visually impaired warriors on the land and water.  We have been impressed with their ability to quickly learn the basic skills of Hawaiian outrigger canoe paddling.  Our other youths have embraced them whole heartedly!

We are looking forward to having our “Nā Koa Makapo” crew race at our Keiki Heihei Waʻa (youth canoe regatta), part of the San Diego Shaka Fest, on Saturday April 23, 2016 at Crown Point on beautiful Mission Bay
