some Tarot which is going to be an important Uber route into what I’m going to be Talking about later now with that being Said the Hawaiian people were very smart Innovative and creative individuals they Survived by living off the I know living On living off this land and being Stewards of the land and sea yeah one of The greatest creations of the Hawaiian People besides many other things that Helped lay a foundation for the many Years to come is the creation of Something we call the ahutua so repeat After me you want to take this word part First part can guys all say Hey guys Was a land division that would run from The mountain down to the Sea welcome to Mankind yeah it was also a systematic Process inside this land division where Hawaiians would gather and maintain Resources from the mountain to the Sea So that they can all benefit from one Another now the reason why this Alpha Was so important to the Hawaiian people Because it taught us that kuleana a Responsibility by all who lived on these Islands are the only way to survive as One now one main important resource in This system was fresh water the Hawaiian Word for fresh water is bite you guys All say bye This fresh water would run from the Mountain to the Sea Mountain to Makai so Everyone can benefit from that resource Now instead of completely diverting our Waters back in the day what we did is we Worked with this natural flow to create The hundreds of terraces we used to have Here because of these long river waves It gave Hawaiians an opportunity to grow Hawaiian crops such as my um which is Our banana Hawaiian breadfruit voila native Hawaiian sweet potato cold sugar cane And the most important crop to the Hawaiian people are Kalo which is Formerly Known around the world as tarot Yeah and I believe that some of you guys If I tried tear on some sort of way but For those guys who don’t know what Tara Is turtle is our starch yeah now the Reason why this color was so important To the Hawaiian people because it was Said that the first Sprout of our Kalo Plant came from the burial site of the First kanaka or Hawaiian therefore Revered by the Hawaiian people it’s not Just a good source of nutrients the Kalo Has taught us like genealogy you know as You can say it’s honest the importance Of creation life and the most important Phrase to the Hawaiian people Aina Malama meaning to take care I ended

Preparing for the Old Lahaina Luau
Alright, now let’s get to the main event – the Old Lahaina Luau! We couldn’t be more thrilled to be attending this iconic cultural celebration. Our family has been visiting Hawaii since 2020, and the Old Lahaina Luau has become a cherished tradition for us. The anticipation is building as we imagine the delectable food and captivating hula dancers that await us at the luau.
While we are filled with excitement for the upcoming Old Lahaina Luau, we want to set the right expectations. It’s important to note that this particular luau does not include traditional fire dancing. However, there are plenty of other awe-inspiring performances that will leave you in awe.
One of the highlights of the Old Lahaina Luau is the cooking process. The pigs are cooked in an underground oven, known as an imu. This cooking method dates back centuries and is deeply rooted in Hawaiian culture. Layers of wood, rocks, and foliage are carefully arranged to create the perfect cooking environment.
Each layer serves a specific purpose in the cooking process. The bottom layer consists of mesquite wood, which lends a unique flavor and aroma to the food. The second layer comprises porous rocks that retain and distribute heat evenly. These rocks are carefully selected to prevent any bursting or injuries. Finally, the third layer consists of foliage, such as banana leaves, soaked in water. When the hot rocks come in contact with the wet foliage, steam is created, cooking the food for an extended period and infusing it with incredible flavors.
Beyond the culinary experience, the Old Lahaina Luau provides insights into the significance of land division and fresh water resources in Hawaiian culture. The Hawaiian term for land division is ‘ahupua’a.’ It refers to a system that extends from the mountain to the sea, ensuring the equitable distribution of resources throughout the community. Fresh water, symbolized by the Hawaiian word ‘wai,’ is a vital resource that flows from mountain streams to the sea, nourishing both the land and its people.
Taro, a staple crop for the Hawaiian people, holds tremendous cultural and historical significance. Known as ‘kalo’ in Hawaiian, taro is not just a source of starch and nutrients but also represents the concept of creation, life, and the importance of taking care of the land. The first sprout of the kalo plant is said to have emerged from the burial site of the first Hawaiian, making it deeply revered by the local community.
At the Old Lahaina Luau, audience participation is highly encouraged, especially when it comes to hula dancing. We’ll have the opportunity to learn traditional hula dance moves and sway our hips to the rhythmic beats of Polynesian music. So, be ready to showcase your hula skills and join in on the fun!
As our journey at the Old Lahaina Luau draws to a close, we can’t help but reflect on the incredible experience we’ve had. The Old Lahaina Luau has truly lived up to its reputation as the best and most traditional Luau in Hawaii. From the immersive cultural performances to the mouthwatering food and the warm hospitality, every aspect of this luau has been nothing short of exceptional.
We hope this article has given you a glimpse into the magic of the Old Lahaina Luau. It’s an experience that seamlessly blends Hawaiian history, cultural customs, and delicious cuisine, all while spreading the message of love and aloha. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a seasoned Hawaii enthusiast, attending the Old Lahaina Luau is an absolute must.
