His journey changed Hawai'i forever… The lone survivor of a village killed in King Kamehameha’s conquests, teenage Henry Opukahaia swam out to a ship and voyaged for two years before landing in New England. Hear this once-forgotten true story from the authors, artists and descendants of Hawaiian leaders that retraced Henry Opukahaia’s journey to New England two centuries later.
Alone in the frigid new surroundings, Opukahaia was soon adopted into a family and became a scholar whose writings have changed Hawai’i forever. Inspired by Opukahaia, three Hawaiians and 14 New Englanders sailed across the globe as the first missionary team to Hawai'i.
