Nā One Hānau: The Sands of Our Birth
Celebrating and commemorating the origins of Hawai'i's sacred lands
Hawaiʻiʻs history and culture are entwined with stories and legends of sacred lands. There are many songs that are composed and dedicated to the lands that are sacred to the Hawaiian people. In this year's Lū'au we will travel down the island chain, from Niʻihau to Hawaiʻi island, visiting some of these spiritually significant places through a combination of song, dance, and food.
