The Grand Luau at Honua'ula Activities & Menu

Honua'ula takes us back to a time when the mighty seafaring Polynesians discovered this land of Hawaii,
thereafter calling themselves Hawaiian. It touches upon the documented voyages of La'amaikahiki and Moikeha
who first came to this sacred island we call Maui, specifically this area named Honua'ula. It speaks of gods and
goddesses that watched over these courageous people and how they were able to co-exist and live in harmony.
Pele, the goddess of fire is described as one who came prior to the settlers, paving the way with her lava so there
would be land sufficient for the Hawaiian people to live. Lilinoe, the goddess of the mist was said to linger above
sending cool rains to nourish the lands. The mermaid of Maui, Kananaka, swooned near the surfers and tried to
capture them for fun. The love story legend of Naulu, the goddess of the clouds could only visit her lover Kanaloa
in upon the clouds.
These stories combined create an exciting evening of traditional chant and hula bringing the history of our island
home Maui, to life. Hele Mai, come and enjoy the magical enchantment of Honua'ula.

The Mo’o forest is deep in the Hawaiian forest where a mysterious creature dwells. The Mo’o or

chance and riddle in order for her to pass.

will be fast moving and involve play acting comedy. It will also utilize the hula implements of
that time of when jump and swing were introduced to Hawaii.
Scene 7 Naulu:
We continue to utilize the parachute as a performing arts piece because the fabric comes alive in
such a way that cannot be duplicated by human hands. It plays on the air in its own movement
while floating around the dancer

The dancer’s are synchronized with their fire knives as they swing and move and punch through
the air.
