Water Is Life Update – Okeanos Indigenous Sailing Canoe

Raíces Cultural Center, along with more than a dozen community collaborators and co-sponsors and over fifty local and international artists, is gearing up for this weekend’s Water Is Life Art Exhibit Series Opening Reception. The Okeanos Foundation for the Sea team recently installed their model of a vaka, a Polynesian indigenous sailing canoe. Check out the photos from the installation and more info from Okeanos below:

“The mission of Okeanos Foundation for the Sea is to implement a fossil fuel-free sustainable sea transportation network of modernized Pacific sailing canoes (vakas) through public service and social entrepreneurship activities in the Pacific islands. This vaka model was built in the spring of 2017 to exhibit at the March for Science in NYC and Climate March in Washington DC.”
