Maui Luaus

Listing of ALL Maui Luaus, Locations, Direct Contact Info & Details!

The Hawaiian Islands are renown for their luaus and Maui is no exception. Originally an ancient custom based on royalty and religion, the luau became a foundation of island practice in 1819. Prior to this date, it was considered taboo for men and women to dine together. King Kamehameha II shattered this ancestral ban when he sat and dined with women and his common subjects. The hula dance and the fire knife dance have been the typical form of entertainment since early times. Local residents of Maui use the luau as a celebration of their children's 1st birthday and graduation from high school. The word "luau" is derived from the most preferred food served at these banquets, lu'au. The dish is made of chicken, young taro leaves and coconut milk which is baked or steamed. In fact, you will still find this island fare at luaus today.
