Fairmont Kea Lani Makahiki

South Maui Homes

By Mark Harbison

Interested in expanding your knowledge of Hawaiian culture? Located conveniently close to South Maui homes, the Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel will be hosting a Makahiki, which is an ancient Hawaiian tradition that took place in the fall, and included a break from war and work in order to worship Lono, the Hawaiian god of fertility, and to make offerings to Hawaiian royalty, known as the ali'i. The celebrations included feasting, dancing hula, and playing games. This event is just one more example of why we enjoy representing Maui real estate in this area. There is always something interesting happening nearby!

If you'd like to learn more about this exciting, historic event, drop by the Fairmont Kea Lani. The festivities kick off today, November 16th, with a performance by the students of UH Maui College's Institute of Hawaiian Music. This will take place from 6-7pm in the lobby.

The games and activities will be on Monday, November 18th, on the Polo Lawn, next to Polo Beach. Here is the schedule:

11:00am – 1:00pm, Bracelet Weaving
12:00pm – 1:00pm, Hula Lessons
12:00pm – 2:00pm, Makahiki Games
2:00pm – 3:30pm, Poi Pounding

As an added bonus, attendance is free, and whether you're looking for a family outing with your kids, or if you'd like to enjoy a unique date with your sweetheart, this event should be a hit. Most importantly, it's a great way to keep Hawaiian culture and tradition alive in a world that is changing fast. Hawaiiana is every bit as special as the natural beauty of the islands, and should be protected with equal passion from both residents and visitors. We hope you'll drop by, learn some new things, and have a wonderful experience. Visit the Fairmont website for more information.

Mahalo for reading!
