Hawaiki is the ancestral home of Polynesia, with many peoples of the Pacific tracing their whakapapa (geneology) to this place and sharing a cmmon ancestry and heritage. The commonality invokes a sense of unity amongst Polynesian people. This is reflected in six-man racing canoes, where people of all backgrounds come together, sharing a love and passion for paddling, and working together to move the canoe in unity and speed.
The Hawaiki design recognizes the whakapapa of modern paddling, but also looks to the future of the sport and the power that unity can harness in both paddling and life.
