Maui Nui Luau Family Dinner Package At Sheraton Maui Resort
The luau is a traditional Hawaiian feast that has been around for centuries. It originated as a way to celebrate special occasions such as births, weddings, and other important events. The word “luau” itself comes from the Hawaiian words “Lu” meaning “leaf” and “au” which means “feast”. In ancient times, these feasts were reserved for royalty only but over time they became more accessible to everyone in Hawaii. Today, the luau is still an integral part of Hawaiian culture and is celebrated by both locals and visitors alike!
Hula dancing is an ancient Polynesian dance form that has been passed down through generations. It’s a narrative art form, telling stories and legends of the Hawaiian people with graceful hand gestures and swaying hips. Hula dancers use their hands to create beautiful shapes and symbols that represent different characters in the story they are telling. The traditional costumes worn by hula dancers feature colorful skirts or leis made from natural materials such as flowers, grasses, leaves, feathers, shells, bark, and more. Whether it is a solo performance or performed in groups called ‘hālau’, hula dancing can be seen throughout Hawaii today as both an entertaining performance art and a spiritual practice.
Kalua pork cooked in an imu is a traditional Hawaiian dish that has been enjoyed for centuries. The word “imu” refers to the underground oven used to slow-cook the meat, which gives it its signature smoky flavor and tender texture. The pork is usually seasoned with sea salt before being wrapped in leaves and placed into the heated imu pit. After several hours of cooking, the pork emerges juicy, succulent, and infused with a deep smoky aroma from its time spent in the earth’s embrace. Kalua pork cooked in an imu is truly a unique experience that can’t be replicated anywhere else – it’s no wonder why this dish remains such a beloved culinary tradition!
