Get ready for more Mo‘olelo, Mana‘o and Mele
On Saturday, August 29, Moku‘ula by Moonlight returns to Maui, beginning at 6:30 pm. As the full moon rises over Mauna Kahalawai in West Maui, the Mokuʻula/Mokuhinia restoration site in Lahaina will be in the spotlight and our host, Ata Damasco, will share the stage with more special guests. This cultural and educational program is free and open to the public.

Friends of Moku‘ula ethnohistorian and anthropologist/archaeologist, Paul Christiaan Klieger, will talk about his new book, Kamehameha III – He Mo‘olelo no ka Mo‘i Lokomaika‘i. Kauikeaouli was the Hawaiian Kingdom’s most beloved, most defiant and most accomplished ruler. Beginning with the rediscovery of the king’s residence at Moku‘ula in Lahaina, Dr. Klieger has gathered information on the life of Kauikeaouli for over 20 years.

And that’s not all:  The Kapu ‘ohana will provide mea ‘ai sampling of traditional Hawaiian foods with plates for sale; Friends of Moku‘ula will sell logo hats, bags and books.

Moku‘ula by Moonlight festivities take place on the lawn next to the Hale Halawai in Kamehameha Iki Beach Park at 525 Front Street, Lahaina. Limited seating will be provided for kupuna; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome. For more information, contact us.
