Maui Ocean Center Petroglyph Presentation

Maui Ocean Center near South Maui CondosBy Mark Harbison

The Maui Ocean Center (MOC) often hosts interesting events to make visitor experience as memorable and educational as possible. For those that prize Hawaiian cultural immersion, their upcoming event, Friday No Ka 'Oi should be just the thing to enhance your enjoyment.

The theme of Friday No Ka 'Oi is Hawaiian petroglyphs, or Ki'i Pōhaku. There will be a special presentation by Hawaiian practitioner Kekai Kapu. Hawaiian petroglyphs are one of the most ancient and integral components of our history, and it should be interesting to see how they connect with the marine world's overarching influence over early Hawaiian culture.

What makes the Maui Ocean Center such a great educational cornerstone is its emphasis on both the ecological and cultural health of Hawaii. These may seem like two separate things, but in reality, they are completely intertwined. Hawaiian culture is deeply rooted in the natural world, which is reflected in both the oral history and spiritual beliefs. The Maui Ocean Center strives to teach guests about that unique and special relationship, in an effort to preserve it.

If you do wind up attending, there will be a complimentary Mid-Day Mana'o tour. Also, the award-winning Seascape Ma'alaea Restaurant will have a delicious island-style plate lunch special.

If you want to learn more about this event and the Maui Ocean Center, you can visit their website at mauioceancenter.com or call 808-270-7000.
