Te Au Moana (The Ocean Tide) Show

Following our Kupuna’s (ancestors) method of storytelling, Te Au Moana comes to life in a storytelling format.

Act I:
Retelling of the legendary episodes of Maui as he lifted the heavens from the earth so that man could walk tall, slowing the sun so that his mother Hina could dry her kapa, retrieving ava from the gods so that man could partake, and the fishing up of the islands from the sea.

Act II:
Features dances from Tahiti, Tonga, and the Atolls of Cook Island to demonstrate the inherent relationship among all of Oceania.

Act III:
Celebrates the island of Maui with contemporary songs and hula, including ukulele players, a vibrant torch dance, and the dangerous fire knife dance of Samoa.

Event Information

Flower Leis/Flower Craft
It is common throughout Polynesia to find great gatherings of people weaving indigenous foliage and flowers into elaborate arrangements. Guests will share in this pastime by creating their own floral piece; and learn of the significance of the lei and experience its timeless appeal.

Otherwise tapa or bark cloth can be found throughout all of Polynesia. To Hawaiians it is a hana no’eau or skilled art that survived extinction and is being constantly revived.

Coconut Husking
The coconut is a central staple to the Polynesian diet. Maui’s mother Hina is closely associated with the coconut throughout the South Pacific. Our coconut artisan will demonstrate the skill of husking, opening, and processing of the coconut from liquid to milk as it has been prepared for hundreds of years

Hula Dancers(Casual Hula’s and Storytelling)
Hula to share with guests who wish to remain seated and enjoy the ambiance.

Tongan Crafters
Dressed in traditional garments, our cousins the Tongan Crafters and Carvers display hand crafted artifacts for discussion and storytelling.

Samoan Crafter
Native to the islands of Samoa, our Samoan crafter shares with you the crafts and stories behind the crafts that come from her homeland.

Hawaiian Artisans
Maui’s own Kapu family will provide a Hawaiian exhibit and offer deep insight into the multitude of Hawaiian Weapons, epic voyages, and royal lineages of Maui.

A Hawaiian game played during the Makahiki otherwise harvest festival where peace and the arts were enjoyed by all.

Fresh Flower or Fish-hook Lei’s
Symbolic of the bond between oneself and the land, such is manifested by wearing a lei. (lei’s subject to availability)
