Outrigger Canoeing and Indigenous People Celebration
August, 2019. Sponsored by JOPP and The Wahines for Richmond Dramatic Arts Students. A day in the San Francisco Bay of fun and education. A collaboration of Joe Orrach for JOPP, Kwesi Anku for the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts and Captain Maggie Hallahan. Students and some parents participated. We learned about the outrigger canoe in Hawaiian culture and then actually tried it out in Aquatic Park and the San Francisco Bay.
