Beyond the Blue: Papahānaumokuākea Mapping

(EX2403, EX2404, EX2407)

Hawaiian Word of the Day

Throughout the Beyond the Blue: Papahānaumokuākea Mapping 1 expedition, join Native Hawaiian cultural liaisons Malia Kapuaonālani Evans and Makoa Pascoe each day as they introduce a new Hawaiian word connected to ocean exploration. The vocabulary was developed by members of the Native Hawaiian Cultural Working Group and assembled in support of expeditions in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument on Ocean Exploration Trust’s Exploration Vessel Nautilus, to develop a shared terminology for deep-sea expeditions and uplift and celebrate the vibrant resurgence of ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language). You can also find these terms in the education resource Nā Huaʻōlelo Huakaʻi ʻAumoana - Visual Vocabulary 'Ōlelo Hawaiʻi and English.
