Hōkūle'a is built to follow ancient sea paths. Nainoa Thompson searches the sky for clues his ancestors once used to find land across a trackless ocean. Mau Piailug reaches out across barriers of culture and distance to pass on the seafaring art of his ancestors. A crew bonds together with aloha on a voyage to Tahiti - the first Hawaiians to navigate the Pacific without charts or instruments in a thousand years. Hawaiki Rising is the unpublished story of the Hōkūle'a and the men and women who sailed in the wake of their ancestors to discover pride in their culture and themselves.
