Meet our 2017 NPD Plenary Speaker:

Kaʻiulani Murphy, Polynesian Voyaging Society

We are excited to feature as our keynote speaker for this year’s National Philanthropy Day Conference, Making Waves: The Power of Community Action, Ms. Kaʻiulani Murphy, Navigator and Education Specialist for the Polynesian Voyaging Society (PVS).  Kaiulani will be interviewed by A. Kam Napier, Editor-in-Chief, Pacific Business News.

Kaʻiulani Murphy, originally from Waimea on Hawaii Island, graduated from Kamehameha in 1996 and has a Hawaiian Studies degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  Besides her work with PVS, she is also an Instructor at Honolulu Community College where she teaches Hawaiian Studies–Voyaging.

Kaʻiulani found the Polynesian Voyaging Society in 1997 when she enrolled in Hawaiian Studies Voyaging class. She had the opportunity to sail on Hōkūleʻa when she was taken out for sea trials to Molokai. When she didn’t get seasick, like the majority of the rest of the class, she applied for a job with PVS and started working the summer of 2008.

Her first deep-sea voyage was from Tahiti back to Hawai’i in 2000 and she recently was part of the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage sailing legs 5, 21 and the return Voyage from Tahiti to Hawaii.  

We look forward to hearing Kaʻiulani share her experiences with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, voyages on the Hōkūleʻa, and the power of community action.

Mahalo to our NPD Sponsors!
