Hele Mai :: Welcome
Honua‘ula takes us back to a time when the mighty seafaring Polynesians discovered these islands of Hawai‘i, thereafter calling themselves Hawaiian. It touches upon the documented voyages of La‘amaikahiki and Mo‘ikeha who ﬁrst came to this sacred island Maui, and named this place 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. Lilinoe, the goddess of the mist was said to linger above sending cool rains to nourish the uplands of Maui. The ancient Hula evolves and in the 30s, swingtime hula emerges and takes the stage. The love story legend of Naulu, the goddess of the clouds, could only visit her lover Kanaloa 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.
