The Voyage of Kealoha

This video, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, is a dramatization based on the account of an actual voyage by Charles Edward Kealoha, a Native Hawaiian who traveled to Alaska in 1876-77 to participate in the Arctic whale hunt. He and another Native Hawaiian seaman were stranded there and lived among the Iñupiat in a northern Alaskan village for six months. The narrative closes with Kealoha's rescue and safe return to Hawai‘i.
