Long ago Polynesians built sailing canoes and navigated the Pacific Ocean. How did they accomplish this amazing feat? It starts here with Mālama Honua: My Voyage, a super-fun interactive appisode that combines a real-life adventure with 9 learning puzzles!
It’s a prequel to Moana, and the story of Hōkūle'a and the Mālama Honua worldwide voyage!
• Interactive puzzles requiring smarts, skill and dexterity
• Excursions led by Hawaiian cultural experts
• Over 30 minutes of live-action video
• Charming hidden interactive surprises
• The Mālama Honua theme song and music video
• Teacher and parent guides, as well as links to full curriculum plans
Designed for children ages 5-8 – but its rich content makes it the perfect app for the entire family. The especially curious will find surprises – splashing fish, skittering crabs and twirling palm trees – that compel them to return to the app again and again.
Fixed an issue with dragging Hokulea - it should be smoother now!
Ratings and Reviews
I love it!!
Such a great app for kids that want to learn about Hawaiian voyagers in an engaging and interactive way! It teaches a great lesson on taking care of the earth and I always find myself humming mālama honua!! I hope there is a second episode soon!
Must have for young kids
I bought this app for my niece and nephew who love to play games on the family iPad. They are enthralled with this story about a voyage around the world and they love the characters, music, and adventures. I highly recommend this app for any parent or relative who wants to teach young kids about environmental responsibility and how they can contribute to building a better world. Fun and educational with an important message about ethics. We need more games like this!!
Mahalo nui for making this app! We live in the mainland and try to keep our keiki "connected" to their heritage as much as we can. This app kept my youngest (age 4) engaged and interested, taught him Hawaiian words & history, etc. He has been singing the "Malama Honua" song all day! We cannot wait until the next appisode is available and hope it's released soon!! 🙏🏽
