The Friends of Mokuʻula are pleased to announce the premiere of a new educational and Hawaiian cultural series, Mokuʻula by Moonlight, on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. As the full moon rises over Mauna Kahalawai in West Maui at 7:10 pm, the Mokuʻula/Mokuhinia restoration site in Lahaina will be in the spotlight.

During this free program, beginning at 6:30 pm, guests will be treated to mo‘olelo (storytelling) by lineal descendants of Mokuʻula in Ahupuaʻa Waineʻe, Moku O Lahaina and mana‘o (thoughts) by a Hawaiian cultural specialist. Once the moon rises overhead, live music will begin with some of Maui’s most popular entertainers in a kanikapila style jam session.

Mokuʻula by Moonlight will be held on the lawn next to the Hale Halawai in Kamehameha Iki Beach Park, 525 Front Street, Lahaina. Limited seating will be provided for kūpuna; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome. For more information, email us
