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. Lilinoethe 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 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.
