Malia Weeb gets help from Steve Soltysik while building a model of the Hokule‘a. Soltysik, with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, taught children about the voyaging canoe during the June 1 Ocean Fest at Turtle Bay. The wooden pieces, he explained, were cut by male prisoners on Kauai, and the sails were cut by female prisoners specifically for this educational outreach. Photo by Rachel Breit, rbreit@midweek.com
